Summer Songwriting Workshop

June 26, 2019 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm

There’s no ONE right way to write a song, so in the Summer Songwriting Workshop, students will explore many elements of songwriting. Lyrically they’ll hone their storytelling skills and create meaning by using imagery, metaphor and perspective. Musically, students will learn to use basic music theory to write memorable melody lines, unique rhythms and chord progressions. We’ll look at the inspiration process; where do ideas come from and how to do we cultivate creative flow? As well as the editing process; how do we craft a song into greatness? Students will experiment with solo and small-group writing exercises. They’ll be encouraged but not required to share songs with the class, where we will address vocal health, performance skills, and learning to give constructive and compassionate feedback. Instruments encouraged but not necessary!

  • All workshops are FREE for students enrolled in four or more summer lessons! Let the office know which workshop(s) you would like to attend and we will be happy to register you!
  • Students not taking 4 or more lessons can attend any workshop for $10. Simply click the “Register Now” link here.
