Introduction to Songwriting
This class is designed for aspiring singer-songwriters who play guitar or keyboard and have little or no formal training or experience with songwriting. Class includes eight (8) sessions with a professional songwriter and an informal performance (optional) at an open Mic show. In addition to aspiring solo songwriters, songwriting teams are welcome.
The class covers many aspects of the craft, including the melodic and harmonic foundation of great songs, the relationship of words and music, and the basic structures of songs for multiple kinds of music (rock and roll, pop, folk, blues, etc.).
