WORKSHOP: Song Creation with Josh Bogert

In Josh’s workshop, you’ll be led through the process of creating a song from start to finish, from the initial idea to the final release. You’ll work with Josh to write a song, learning about song structure, how to create compelling lyrics and melody, and how to brainstorm ideas. Then you’ll learn how to create a demo for your song, recording audio and programming virtual instruments. And finally, you’ll learn various ways to release your music digitally on official platforms, making your song available to the world.

Josh Bogert bio: My musical journey started before I can remember. I grew up singing, playing instruments, and enjoying music in every situation possible. I started classical violin at the age of four, and when I turned 10, I wanted more than anything to learn to play guitar, so I started taking lessons. In high school I learned to play saxophone and drums, and at 13, I became serious about a career as an artist. I wrote my first song because I figured I should, but I soon realized I could impact people in the same way music had impacted me. I take influence from an entire life of musical education, formal and informal. Seven years of self taught sound engineering allows me to produce, mix, and master my own music. It’s hard for me to explain exactly who I am. The best way I know how is to play you some music. It helps me feel and understand my emotions, and provides a satisfaction I’ve never found anywhere else.

Workshop takes place online, using Microsoft Teams Meetings.

Surrey Civic Theatres

Surrey Civic Theatres are built on the unceded territories of the se’mya’me (Semiahmoo), q̓ʷɑ:n̓ƛ̓ən̓ (Kwantlen), and q̓ic̓əy̓ (Katzie) nations. We are honoured to work and learn on land they have stewarded since time immemorial.

Surrey Civic Theatres are owned and operated by the City of Surrey. Venues include the Main Stage and Studio Theatre inside the Surrey Arts Centre, and Centre Stage located inside Surrey City Hall.

Events held on these stages are both programmed by Surrey Civic Theatres’ staff, as well as presented by organizations and individuals who rent the theatres. Together, they provide the community with a spectrum of performing arts and entertainment options.

Surrey Civic Theatres also support the training and development of emerging artists through performing arts classes and workshops including day camps for children, youth, and adults.

The annual Surrey International Children’s Festival is produced as part of the Surrey Civic Theatres’ portfolio of programming.

Guided by the best practices of performing arts venues in Canada, Surrey Civic Theatres ensures its venues are safe for audiences, artists, and their specialized staff. All venues feature LED lighting to be more sustainable.

Together, the three venues support a busy schedule of high-quality performing arts from classical music and dance from a variety of cultures, through to socially engaged theatre productions for all ages, as well as numerous community events.
