Introduction to Songwriting

  • Online Classes
  • Singer/Songwriter


This class is for you if you’ve always wanted to write a song but don’t know how to get started.  Or maybe you’ve written a little and would love to learn some tools to help you continue on this path.

In the course of the semester, I’ll teach you some basic rules and guidelines of songwriting.  I’ll also guide you through exercises to help take the fear and mystery out of the songwriting process, plus help you navigate your way out of writer’s block.  Our focus will be on both lyric writing and creating melodies.

Creating your own work is often a tender, vulnerable experience.  It is my priority to create an emotionally safe, fun environment in which to facilitate this process for class members.  Please come to class prepared with a notebook and pen.

This class will be held from 6:30-7:45pm ET on Tuesdays Aug. 6, Aug. 13, Aug. 20, Aug 27

Please note: Pre-sales are highly encouraged! Sales end 2 hours before the class begins. 4 students are required for this class to meet. If a class is cancelled due to low enrollment, you will be notified and receive a full refund.
