How does a "Multi-Day" course work?

Meets multiple times at scheduled times
Live video chats, recorded and monitored for safety and quality
Discussions via classroom forum and private messages with the teacher
Great for engaging projects and interacting with diverse classmates from other states and countries

Class Experience

I’m an award-winning songwriter with a bachelor’s degree in songwriting from Berklee College of Music. I have a decade of experience post-school, in the trenches writing commissioned songs for weddings, and releasing my own music to iTunes. My personal favorite part of songwriting is specifically the lyrics. My personal love for story-driven songs is what inspired this course, as well as requests from many learners in my “Songwriting for Beginners” class for more on the topic. 
Any time I share listening content online, I will post the resource links on the class page! I can also provide the slide show from class upon request! No materials are required from students themselves.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
