ONLINE: Introduction to Songwriting
In this 2-hour session, we’ll talk about how songs are built, including what make a chorus, a verse, and a bridge. We’ll look at popular songs as we write our own original lyrics. We’ll also talk about the intimidating questions of how to begin and end a song. As we delve deeper into the mechanics of writing lyrics, we’ll count out the rhythms that exist naturally in everyday language and we’ll use those rhythms to make our songs even more memorable. Taught by an instructor whose original musical was performed at Brown University, this class welcomes students of all backgrounds and interests, and particularly anyone new to writing! We’ll plan to have fun, give ourselves freedom to fail, discover new meanings in old hits, and write something new!
