Holland and Parton's class will focus on writing songs that proceed directly from the author's experience, whether the material is fictionalized or not. They’ll explore how musical form can be used to express situations and emotional states, and how to hone personal visions within songwriting. Participants will learn to hear their own inner songs.
Their workshop will be focused on songwriting techniques, with a peripheral but strong focus on performance. It’ll be 80/20% solo/group work.
Bring: a notebook and writing implements, and an instrument you like to compose with.
