Tap your imagination and discover the power of writing your own songs in this interactive, exploratory class for all levels. Examine the forms, structures, and settings of different types of songs and why they work, from early blues to modern-day confessionals. Learn where to look for inspiration, how to use music to make your song pop, and how to grow your idea into a complete song by the end of five weeks. No experience or knowledge of music necessary. Please bring a notebook and pen or pencil; instrument if you have one; and a recording device.
