NC singer/songwriter Michael Daughtry brings his audiences powerful, positive rock tinged with folk and pop. His vocal range shines in his original songs, which feature tight, driving performances as a solo acoustic act and with the backing of his band, The Drift. A gifted guitarist and pianist, Daughtry has earned accolades from a range of artists, including Luenell, Derek Trucks, John Ford Coley, and Dale Baker of Sixpence None the Richer. Daughtry has opened concerts for Jimmy Buffett and Edwin McCain, among others. He is a Magna cum Laude graduate of the Berklee College of Music. Workshop Songwriting with Intention (6-12) We will use a concept called “song prompts” to aid in writing a song. What do you want to write about? What do you want the listener to feel or get out of the song? Total Fee: $400/ $700 Assembly Performance Guidelines and Practices for Musical Performance (K-12) In this assembly, I will perform several of my original songs. After each song I will go over general practices to make stage performing easier, more efficient, less stressful, and more enjoyable for all. This includes preparation, sound staging/checking, stage movement, performing with others, and reading the room. Total Fee: $600/ $900 Residency Writing your official SENIOR CLASS SONG (9-12) This three day program has a clear and attainable goal: to compose a senior class song for the class of 2023! Any ideas that the students come up with on their own maybe use in their own songwriting. I will record the completed song along with a lyric and chord sheet. All students involved will receive equal songwriting credit (names listed as “written by”). The school will own rights to the sound recording. Total Fee: $2500 Workshop The Songwriting Session (6-12) Our goal for this workshop will be to write a chorus/main theme and an outline for a song. Students may work on their own, or in collaborations of up to 3 people. This would be determined before the session to save time. Understand the interacting elements to respond to music and music performances. Total Fee: $500/ $850 Workshop Song Prompts: the Next Level (6-12) This is a more advanced version of the ‘Songwriting with Intention’ workshop. Students will be expected to compose a draft of an entire song based on parameters given at the beginning of the workshop. Understand the interacting elements to respond to music and music performances. Total Fee: $400/ $700
