We'll explore the craft of songwriting by looking closely at outstanding songs for inspiration and example.
Each week we'll listen to one or more great songs and discuss their craft in depth. We'll explore the structure, music and lyrics of each song to discover what makes it effective. Songs will be chosen by class members as well as the instructor.
Participants will come away with an approach to analyzing songs and a deepened appreciation of aspects of song craft including structure, melody, rhythm, prosody, rhyme, use of images, point of view, dynamics, etc.
For song writers and song appreciators; all levels of experience welcome.
