If there is any part of you that wants to do this workshop, do it.
Even if you've never written a song.
Even if you have a notebook full of songs.
The thing is, anyone can learn and 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.
Have you ever wanted to write songs but didn't know where to start? Or maybe you've come up with a chorus but didn't know what to do next? Maybe you've even finished a song or two but you're not sure how to do it again. You are not alone! Or perhaps you’re a musician or songwriter who is ready to dive straight into making your songs as good as they can be.
Regardless of where you are in your process, hop on the fast-track to your next phase of growth as you join Eliot for a few hours to learn the tools, tricks, and industry secrets Eliot has spent years mastering. With playful creative prompts, fun writing exercises, and constructive feedback we will explore and develop our songwriting abilities together. This hands-on process creates immediate results that strengthen your songs and provide practical tools you will use again and again. And most importantly, you will leave this workshop inspired, and with the tools to continue creating!
Songwriting is a natural form of expression. Nearly all children do it spontaneously. It's only later that we "learn" that it is a special ability reserved for a select few. But the truth is, everyone can write songs, and everyone can get better at writing songs. The best way to learn to just start doing it! What are you waiting for?
TOPICS WE WILL EXPLORE:
Getting started (and getting unstuck)
The qualities that make lyrics great and how-to strengthen lyrics
Creating memorable melodies & a powerful choruses
How a song should be structured - and how it could be structured
Tips and tricks to creating all the parts of a song; melody, chorus, and bridge
What to do in a bridge
Writer’s Block, and how to get out of it
Rhymes and word choice (and near rhymes and non-rhymes, oh my!)
What is your melody saying
How do you know if it's good?
It is time to up your songwriting game.
