Building Blocks of a Good Song

Songwriting is a learnable skill. Writing a good song requires the desire to use the tools that help you structure your words and your melodies into a cohesive and memorable song. In this class we will learn how to paint with words. Lyrics should be short, crisp and create a visual impression. Through compression, haiku and other small window exercises, we will work on saying the most with the fewest words while always keeping rhythm, rhyme and repetition at the top of mind. In the afternoon we will explore the families of chords and how they help you build the foundation of color and melody for the marriage of music and words. From there we’ll write songs that are structured around the guidelines and tools of a memorable song.
