Song Writing Class
Songwriting is an intensive programme tailored to each student’s strengths and weaknesses. Focused on nurturing expression, it primarily deals with aspects such as arrangement, melody, harmony, production, lyrics, styles and composition. Classes are extremely activity oriented and many musical as well as non musical exercises are explored to work with different elements for developing a song. Students learn how to use their thinking process and how to employ different forms of writing, melody and lyrics. They also experiment with metre, styles and sounds.
The class works on projects, either solo or collaborative. The solo project is something each individual takes up to develop their own personal portfolio. The collaborative projects are when the class as a group composes songs, produces them and records them.
