Class Experience

Students will leave the class with a deeper understanding of harmony, melody, and lyrics, as well as being able to recognize song forms. 

Students will have created an inspiration journal to keep ideas in, and will begin to have a deeper understanding of their own personal musical style and taste.

Students will be encouraged to continue finding inspiration and writing songs as well as continue with suggested listening of songwriters.
