If there is any part of you that wants to do this class, do it.
Even if you've never written a song.
Even if you have a notebook full of half-finished songs that you would never want anyone to see.
The thing is, anyone can learn. Anyone can get better. You will be amazed and delighted at what you're able to come up with when you've got guidance, encouragement, accountability, and very specific assignments.
- A helpful assortment of tricks that will help you come up with ideas even when you think you're stuck
- The qualities that make lyrics great, and how to write good ones yourself
- How a song should be structured - and how it could be structured
- Shortcuts that will allow you to create music for your song even if you don't play an instrument
You will come away with at least four songs of your very own, plus increased confidence and maybe a bit of music theory.
The class, taught by Eclectic Music director Casey McCann, will meet at 56 17th Street NE in Ansley Park on Wednesday nights from 7 PM until 8 PM starting on November 4 and runs through December 16 (no class the week of Thanksgiving). It is open to all songwriters and aspiring songwriters ages thirteen and up.
