It happens in the dark shadows of a club. Or on a spotlit stage. Or behind the soundproof walls of a studio. A song unleashes its power and who knows where it’ll go? Songs fuel desire, inspire hope, break hearts, rock worlds, unite people, shake booties, turn blahs into blues, and sometimes make us feel as goood as James Brown. All in a mere few minutes.
If you dream of taking your music beyond the shower, you’ll want to do it right. In our courses, you will learn how to structure songs, create “hooks,” craft lyrics, manipulate melody, rhythm and harmony, merge words with music, and write toward genre. You will also learn how and where to market your work.
Whether you favor pop, rock, hip-hop, R&B, country, music, lyrics, or both, we’ll show you how to write songs that soar.
Note: Songwriting is composed of music and lyrics. The Level I course explores lyric writing and song construction while also touching on musical concepts. The Advanced course deals with lyrics and music in equal measure.
