Lorna Roberts

In-Person

Lorna Roberts has worked with ECM since 2016, teaching students how to collaboratively write songs about any and all subjects they're learning about. An example of past songs include: Body Systems, Newton's Laws of Motion, Immigration, Inventions, How to effectively do Opinion Writing, Weather Systems and Climate Change (including the effects on Gadsden Creek in Charleston), Positive Character Traits, the Revolutionary War, The Great Migration, Chemistry Vocabulary and Facts, Democracy and Elections, Superheroes, ETC! Lorna is a former public school teacher who taught in the Gifted and Talented Program as well as in regular classrooms, as well as music in elementary and middle schools in the Lowcountry. Following her passion for songwriting, she traveled to Nashville for nine years to co-write with songwriters there while teaching a monthly songwriting workshop in the Charleston area. Her greatest joy these days is writing songs with students and helping them learn more about the subjects they are studying about, while also helping them become more creative and giving them an opportunity to work cooperatively with others and play with words and write in a safe environment - all while developing critical thinking skills - and having FUN!
