The Art of Songwriting is an introduction to songwriting and will be of interest to high school students who may be aspiring musicians, filmmakers, and writers. Middle school or Junior High Students who want to be challenged may also join this high school level class.
“Where words leave off, music begins.”
The Art of Songwriting is a fast-paced course where students can expect to get an introduction to song composition, techniques in creativity, and a basic understanding of how to get your songs into the hands of the music industry.
Class time will include content lectures, as well as hands-on practice time with the class serving as both your teammates & audience! Students should be prepared to get creative and work toward their personal songwriting goals.
“Music, once admitted to the soul, becomes a sort of spirit, and never dies.”
Songwriting is an honorable and time-tested vocation, as music has been around since the beginning of recorded history. The ability to write and create marketable songs can transform a budding author or musician’s career. The Art of Songwriting will hone your student’s communication skills, give them a creative outlet and allow them to express themselves well.
An understanding of basic writing skills & music is helpful but is not necessary to succeed as your students develop in their understanding of the art of songwriting. You do not need to read music to attend class.
Your creative students may also benefit from our classes in Creative Writing, Music at the Movies, Introduction to Music Theory, or an Art class for a full & robust year of learning. Purchase a Bundle for greater savings.
