Start Songwriting Saturday
Songwriting is for everyone! It is not an elite art form, reserved solely for professional musicians, it happens to be one of the most ancient forms of oral tradition and an intensely accessible social and creative outlet. In this 2-1/2 hour workshop led by local singer-songwriter Skye Zentz, we will dive straight into the world of lyric-craft, pairing old forms with our own original words, discussing the building blocks of clear language, imagery and symbolism. We will write, edit and present our drafted work within a fun filled afternoon of inspiration and word-play! Students should bring a notebook, a favorite writing utensil, a sense of humor and an open mind. While basic instrument/musical proficiency is helpful, the course is also open to those who do not sing or play an instrument themselves. Students who play a musical instrument are welcome to bring it along to accompany themselves in our final activity of the afternoon.
Please note: This class is an online class. To participate, students must have a stable internet connection with a computer or device with a webcam and microphone.
