Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Learners will learn the skills to write engaging song lyrics.
This course is about writing lyrics, so after every class, learners should submit an update to their song. After the first class, they should submit the pop genre they have chosen and the general topic for their song. After the second class, they will submit their main ideas for the verses, chorus, and bridge of their song. After the third class, they should submit a draft of their full lyrics. After the fourth class, learners will submit their full revised lyrics.
Homework should be submitted in a .pdf to the classroom.
Learners should bring a notebook and pencil to class to write down lyric ideas. A .pdf file for each class's homework will be provided.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learners will receive a written assessment on their homework. A letter grade can be provided if requested.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
We will use the following videos from YouTube:
“I See the Light”
“I’m a Believer”
"Hot Air Balloon"
