Overview

Never again will you be faced with a blank page! In this class, we go over four of our favorite "go to" methods for starting a song on any given day, no matter how inspired we are.

This class will teach you how to come up with great song ideas, write common themes, understand song structure, create basic hit chord progressions, and write elevated lyrics and melody using the tools and techniques used by professional songwriters. We'll go over key songwriter-related topics like collaboration, breaking into the industry, networking resources.

Who this class is for:

  • Those who want to compose their own music.
  • Lyricists who want to improve their storytelling skills
  • Songwriters who want to improve their melodic and chordal skills
  • Frustrated songwriters who know they have a song inside them but can't seem to get it out.
