Try your hand at songwriting! Participants will be challenged to create while learning the various elements that go into the craft of songwriting. Not only will students be composing, but they will also be studying popular songs - from the Beatles to contemporary pop music - in an attempt to further understand the importance of innovation while balancing tradition. From melody and harmony to form and lyric writing, the instructor will equip participants with the tools needed to create their own songs. (Participants are expected to have varying levels of musical experience - don't be intimidated!)
