The Art of Songwriting
Curious what it takes to write a song? Did you know that some of the biggest hits are based on simple 2-chord & 3-chord progressions? Successful songwriters use a formula and it’s easier than you think. In this course, you'll learn the tricks of the trade from real-world songwriters. Each week, I'll bring in a local songwriter who will share his/her unique approach to songwriting. You'll learn to apply a framework to write your own songs. Do you have an ear for the next big hit? You'll never know until you try!
Note: In addition to the registration fee, a honorarium of $10 per attendee to be paid directly to the guest songwriter. Students are recommended to bring a notebook and recorder (you can download an app for your phone if you don't have one).
