Songwriting Workshop for Beginners


Songwriting Workshop for Beginners


A three class introductory workshop for beginners who love songs or singing or is just interested in learning about how songs + song forms work. 

Tuesdays: October 3, 10, 17 7:30 - 9:00pm (1.5 Hours)

Summary: Intro to Songwriting is designed for those who have never written before, but also those who’ve never studied before. Let’s face it: how often do we take private or group lessons in songwriting? It’s an introduction, but also serves as a writer’s first organized study of song. 

Techniques Covered: A brief context and history of song, understanding song form and structure, lyrical development, melodic techniques, finding your own voice.

Teacher: Katie von Schleicher
