Have you ever wanted to write a song for your girlfriend or boyfriend? Do you have a burning desire to share an experience with the world through music and lyrics? Do you have a character in your belly that needs to be heard? Do you just love music and want to write a song, but don’t know how to begin, or how to proceed from an initial inspiration? And do you want a supportive environment of peers to help you find your voice and your style? Well, if so, this Singer-Songwriter Workshop is for you!
In this 10 or 12 week long workshop, you will compose music and lyrics for an original song. Each week an educational topic on the process will be covered. We will start from a concept, or initial idea, and proceed to development of drafts. We'll cover literary terms and theory, some basic music theory, song structure and other relevant topics to help you organize your ideas and put them onto paper and into song. As we progress through the workshop, you'll bring copies of lyrics with chord changes to class so you can get feedback and comments from the other participants. Through the workshopping process, you'll hone your own composing skills and help others do the same. By the end, you will have a completed song that you'll perform for your peers and to the general public. The only required materials are a spiral notebook, sharpened pencils, and a creative, open mind!
Singer-Songwriter Workshop is also offered to the high school aged student in our summer sessions. Click here.
