Songwriting

Intro to Songwriting!

A workshop for the next generation of emerging artists! Learn how to write amazing songs through the study of form, melody, and lyric writing. You will also learn how to accompany yourself on ukulele or guitar! Discover the secret recipe of chord progressions and strums, that will allow you to write, sing, and play almost any song. As an end product, students will have the opportunity to present their original song(s) in a masterclass setting, and perform live - if they so desire.

Student must provide their own ukulele or guitar.
