For songwriters and song appreciators. We'll explore the variety and history of song forms used in folk, blues, country and pop music, and look at the function of various song parts (verse, chorus,bridge, refrain, etc).
Each week we will explore a different form, look at examples and place the form in historical context.
Songwriters will come away with a variety of forms to experiment with in their own songs; all will come away with a deepened understanding of song form and song structure.
Optional challenge homework each week will be to write a song in the form discussed that week.
