Make It a Song!


Make It a Song!

from 105.00

Do you have a poem or narrative that might make a good song? Maybe just one line that you always thought could be a great lyric? This workshop is designed to help shape your writing into song form. In the first class, we’ll discuss song structures and techniques used by some of the greatest songwriters and use writing prompts to help focus one piece you’ll mold into a song. In our second session we'll set your lyrics to music and fine-tune any additions. You’ll go home with an audio recording of your new song. No musical experience necessary! (You do not have to sing or play your song; we can help!)
