Songwriting: The Lyrical Craft
Songwriting is an ancient form–one of the earliest means of passing on oral history. Over thousands of years, it has evolved into a many faceted art-form, a source of entertainment, catharsis or escapism. In this workshop, we will explore the songwriting process through listening, writing and editing. We will examine songs from a variety of genres and time periods to investigate what it is that makes a song “stick” with us or not. Through both individual and collaborative efforts, we will explore fun new ways to think outside of the box. At the conclusion of our session, students will have the opportunity to perform their work in a Muse showcase if they choose. While basic music and writing experience is helpful, the course is open to people with or without any experience playing a musical instrument.
