Original Song Inspired By ‘folklore’
Global Context: Personal and cultural expression
What did you create?
I wrote an original song on the guitar inspired by Taylor Swift’s ‘folklore’
Why did you create this?
I enjoy writing music as a form of expression and I wanted to step out of my comfort zone and write a song on an unfamiliar instrument as well as take inspiration from another artist because I thought their storytelling was brilliant.
What were the biggest challenges you faced?
The biggest challenge I faced was coming up with inspiration for the song. Once I had the first few lyrics, the rest came easy, but it tools me months to even start.
What advice would you give to next year’s PP students?
Set yourself a simple goal, something challenging but not incredibly time-consuming.
