Class Description :

For both beginners and advanced students. We will learn to connect personal experience and observations to write lyrics and melodies that matter to you and your audience. We will go over the basics of song structure, poetic sensibility, and melody building that will help beginning students start a song from scratch, and help advanced students develop songs they are already working on.
