To many writers, both accomplished and beginning, the idea of writing a song can seem both inviting and mysterious. In this class we’ll demystify the process as we explore ways to begin our own songs, including learning the basic building blocks, why and how specific songs we know & love appeal to us and applying that information to creating our own songs, specific writing prompts that engage our imagination in ways we might not have experienced before, collaborating with other participants, and revising and completing a song. You¹ll also have an opportunity to submit your work-in-progress for review. Plan on spending at least 1-3 hours on class assignments (although with songwriting, there’s really no time limit & will hopefully be an ongoing process long after the class is complete!).
