7pm to 7:45pm
In our songwriting group, our goal will be to awaken the writer within you. We will use time in class to present a new song in part or in whole, or just discuss our songwriting journey that previous week. We will spend the remaining time looking into one aspect of, or concept within, the art of songwriting and creating chord patterns. We'll work with words and learn to edit lines into lyrics and lyrics into songs. There will be no critiquing, just guided drafting and crafting. Come with an open mind and learn something about how musicians put together their compositions and leave with lyrics of your own.
Instruments are welcome and will be used if you want to, but are not necessary.
Some topics include: The re-adaptation of folk songs, blues formats, how to think about chord progressions, song structure, rhyming patterns, and more.
All levels welcome!!!
