  • Description

    A course for songwriters of any genre. Students may bring lyrics, melodies, chords, or any combination of those. The instructor will work with the group on completing the song, while discussing how to write a nice melody, how to pick a good chord progression, and how to combine lyrics with music. Each student is expected to leave the class with at least two new songs. In order to challenge students to work with different genres, partnerships will be encouraged. 

    The School of Music's Community Music School is open to all members of the community. To register for the course, click here.
