- School of Music class
This course will function primarily as a workshop, where students can bring drafts and ideas for critique and help, but will also explore a variety of topics including lyric rhythm, song forms, models, and exercises to aid in the creative process. We will discuss our favorite songs, what goes into making them so great, and how to borrow some of those techniques in our own writing. We will also talk a great deal about the writing process and how to combat writer’s block by experimenting with creative exercises.
Whether you’re new to songwriting, or have a few years experience, all are welcome!
