Immerse yourself in the art of songwriting! It’s never too late to write a song and once you have done that, honing your songwriting skills becomes a lifelong journey. In this workshop you will be given the tools and guidance to communicate and share your unique songwriting voice and we will deep dive into how melody, rhythm, harmony, and lyrics are woven together to create a powerful, meaningful song.
This course is designed for musicians, songwriters and aspiring songwriters.
At the end of the 3 sessions each participant will have the opportunity (optional) to perform their completed song during our culmination concert on the St. Luke’s stage.
