Class Experience

Our song writing course is designed to provide a comprehensive education in the craft of writing music and lyrics. Through a structured five-day program, we will guide students through the development of the essential building blocks of songwriting, including rhythm, rhyme, melody, and harmony. By the end of the course, every student will have written two fully completed original songs, including both a solo piece and a collaborative group effort, demonstrating their newfound abilities and creative expression.

In our song writing course, a basic understanding of the keyboard and chords is beneficial for maximum participation and understanding. Access to a keyboard is suggested, but if you are proficient on another instrument such as the guitar or ukulele, rest assured that our teaching style accommodates all students. For those without any instrument proficiency, we offer alternative methods such as working with "LOOPS" to ensure every student can fully engage and benefit from the course.

Course Breakdown

Day 1:

We will go over the different sections of the song, including the verse, the chorus, and the bridge, and the role that each plays in the song. I will also teach the students how to do an object write. They will complete an object write and create a short song section for homework to present in the next class.

Day 2:

We will discuss writing chord progressions and melodies. Students will learn a few common chord progressions and how to construct a melody that is singable and compliments their lyrics. We will also go over the homework and talk about developing our songs. Homework will be to write another song section to develop.

Day 3:

We will talk about different types of rhymes and rhyme schemes, and how to use them in our songs. We will also discuss how to vary line lengths to make our songs more interesting. Students will continue working on their songs for homework.

Day 4:

We will discuss writing song sections with a central metaphor and do a fun exercise to practice. We will start to finish up and fine tune our songs, and I will answer any questions the students have concerning their final songs. Students will finish their songs for homework.

Day 5:

Final touches and performance week! Each student will present their final song to the class, either playing live or sharing an MP3 recording. We will all give everyone some positive feedback on their songs and we’ll end the class on a high note!
