- A capella
- School of Music workshop
This workshop will cover all aspects of song-writing. Nationally touring singer-songwriter Antje Duvekot has been writing songs for two decades. In the first half of the class, Antje will share and demonstrate some songwriting secrets from within her arsenal using examples of her own writing process to demonstrate the anatomy of an Antje song. In the second half of the class, students will be encouraged to share some of their own work for some mild and loving critique, feedback and constructive suggestions. Lyrics only, Acapella songs or songs on your chosen instrument are all welcome! And sharing is not mandatory if you’d rather just listen.
This workshop will be held on Sunday, July 22nd from 2-4pm.
