Sensational Songwriting: the Art and Craft of Song [Live & Online]
How do we know if an idea is solid enough to inspire a song? What’s the difference between a ballad and a 3 minute pop song? What are our choices when it comes to rhyming schemes and how do we maintain a flow when scanning lyrics to melody? How do we write a thrilling pre-chorus and what makes a song have an impact? In this four-week workshop we will transform your ideas into songs; exploring structure, storytelling techniques, melodic phrasing, harmonic support and verse/chorus/bridge formats. Each week there will be a songwriting assignment, followed by the opportunity to share your work and receive in-depth feedback from your instructor and peers.
