Note: This class takes place at North Portland.
Pre-registration required. Contact instructor for location details.
This class will explore songwriting as a means to uncover and express deeply-felt truths of the songwriter. What makes a song feel true? How does the songwriter invite and listen for truths that want to be told, then stay true to the song's heart even while using craft to shape it into a work of art?
We'll draw inspiration from great songs and poems and from the shared wisdom and experience of class participants. We'll write in class and between classes, share our songs, and explore ways of listening and responding that help draw out the writer's intention rather than impose the listener's. An inspiring, non-judgmental and fun space in which to deepen our songwriting practice.
NOTE: This class meets in North Portland. Contact Matt for details.
Limited to 8
participants. All levels of experience welcome.
