Songwriting Class

Are you writing songs, but feel a bit lost wondering if they’re good?  Or you don’t know where to even start?  This class will get you on your feet and writing songs right away.

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.
