About the Course

This course is ideal if you’re a musician of any level who wishes to develop competent song writing skills.

Rather than following rules and rigid formulas, the emphasis is placed on concepts and individuality, making song writing a truly creative learning process.

The course will be delivered as a combination of lectures and practical workshops.

The ideal attendee is anyone who wishes to become an authentic musician with a deeper understanding of how songs are written and why they work.

On this course you will:

- learn about rhythm, melody and harmony
- explore philosophical concepts of sincerity in singing and lyrical precision
- consider different sounds in context
- improve your understanding of the creative process
- become part of a network of song writing musicians
- share your work-in-progress before recording, mixing, mastering and preparing for presentation.

Although the learning will largely involve creative song writing and independent thinking, an element of performance will feature during the final sessions.

What will I gain?

You’ll leave the course with new poetic skills, enhanced musical understanding, creative confidence and a basic grasp of industry-level recording software.

You’ll also have a recording of one of your songs.
