Do you have a burning passion to write, but you don't know how to start? Is inspiration running dry? Do you have great ideas that you just can't develop? We can help!


Intended for aspiring songwriters, we will review, develop and utilize some fundamental songwriting skills and techniques.

This course focuses on the art of songwriting, rather than music production and the use of technology. Students wishing to develop their songwriting skills within a studio/computer-based environment might prefer instead to sign up for our music production classes.


There are no prerequisites for this course; however, some basic music knowledge or instrumental experience would be advantageous.


Through active listening and critical analysis, we will explore and practice a variety of approaches to songwriting, while developing an appreciation and understanding of form, melody, harmony, rhythm, arrangements, lyrics and rhyme.


At the end of this course, students will be able to demonstrate:
An understanding of song form and prosody
An ability to develop melodic, harmonic, rhythmic and lyrical themes
