Introduction To Songwriting



Songwriters use language that moves us to action, marks our place in history, and expresses our individual and collective stories. In this course, students will learn how to craft, refine, and present their own songs–music and lyrics. Successful students will develop critical listening skills, gain proficiency as editors, and immerse themselves into self-designed creative practices. Development of a writer?s voice, understanding sense of place, various narrative styles, and traditional song structures will also be explored. Budding to intermediate songwriters will experiment with leveraging their newly minted skills for cultural, environmental, political, or personal impacts.
