New to songwriting? Always wanted to try it out but didn't know where to start? Experienced at the art form but in a creative rut? This class series addresses all of these needs. We'll discuss lyric writing, melody writing, song concepts, song components and their function and much more. The focus is on making you a better songwriter and, at the same time, instilling an appreciation of the art form. The teaching style is one of coaching rather than criticizing, and the emphasis is on the work of the participants and not on the lecturing of the teacher.

This course will be taught online. Students have access to a multimedia rich nine chapter class and will be able submit five songs during the six week period and will receive a recorded evaluation for each song by the instructor. After the six-week period students will continue to have unlimited access to the online lessons. Links and further information will be provided upon registration.
