Justin works with 4th grade students on a school songWestmoor PTO brought Justin & Liam from Carpet Square Records to school for three days of songwriting workshops for this year's artist-in-residence program.

The Grammy-nominated recording artists hosted 45-minute workshops with each class. Following the 'Four Ss of songwriting: story, structure, style and sound,' students wrote lyrics about their school.

Justin and Liam are using the students' work to create a song for each grade. They returned to Westmoor on May 17 to teach each grade their song followed by an all-school assembly during which each grade performed their song for the school. Click the links below for each grade song:
