Classes

If you’re planning on taking your career seriously but have some holes in your knowledge, we can help you fill them.  Check out the tabs below to see these classes.

Songwriting Class

Many of us are writing songs, but feel a bit lost wondering how to tell if they’re good… and, consequently, how to make them better.  And many others of us want write songs, but don’t know how or where to start.

If either of those sound familiar to you, this class will get you on your feet and writing songs within two months.

You Will Learn:

  • How to identify song sections, song structures and arrangements.
  • A song analysis method that will help you understand what makes great songs work.
  • Various strategies to find ideas and themes for your own original songs.
  • The basics of lyric writing: narrative, point of view and tense.
  • An easy music theory method to help you write chord progressions and spice up basic songs.
  • How to use melodic structure and repetition to write catchy melody lines.
  • How to jumpstart your creativity and write when you are uninspired.
  • The most important part of song writing: the editing process.

You can participate in workshop style reviews of your own songs (if you like).
