I am also a singer-songwriter, and I love the vast variety of things one can convey with a song (vocal+piano or vocal+guitar).
Joining lyrics with chord progressions can truly be a powerful thing. I discovered I could write songs in high school
and began doing so, and have been doing so since. (I am 28 now).
Check out my singer-songwriter page here: Bought with a Price Music ...to listen to my vocal+piano or vocal+guitar songs, with other virtual instruments added to the songs as well.
As for teaching songwriting, I would cover the basic "building blocks" that are used to build a song, including Verse 1, Verse 2, etc... Chorus, Bridge, Instrumental, Intro, and Outro. After showing examples of these building blocks, we would need lyrics, whether from Scripture or original lyrics, and then I would begin to show the student how they might craft appropriate chord progressions and melodies, using the building blocks.
