Beginning Songwriting  

Have you ever wanted to write your own song? Do you have a poem that needs music, or a melody that needs words, or a notebook full of ideas? In Beginning Songwriting we'll learn the elements of a song - melody, lyric, harmony, rhythm - and song structure - verse, chorus, lift - by examining classic songs from pop, rock, country and Broadway, all the while developing ideas for our own songs. You don't have to play an instrument or read music (many fine songwriters don't). We'll also learn exercises and habits to free our imaginations, and develop a toolbox to fix songs that aren't working. We'll also examine the technology now available to songwriters, and the role of songwriters in the music business.
