Songwriting for Everyone – G200742

Workshop ID: G200742
Dates: July 26 - July 31
Price: $650.00 - $1,285.00

Personal experience, passionate beliefs, collections of imagery, a streak of silliness?any of these can inspire a song. In this workshop, you will hear about the creative beginnings of some original songs and learn some techniques for writing your own. We’ll explore rhyme, rhythm, melody, harmony, the function of a chorus, and more. You don’t need a great voice or an instrument, just a desire to express yourself in song.
