What's Included

In songwriting, you will write an original song of your own and then record a demo of it in a professional studio. Under the guidance of your master teachers, you’ll learn how to take a stroke of creativity and turn it into an idea you can run with. You will also be encouraged to use the other students in your class as the resources they are: bouncing ideas off of them, playing an instrument or singing on their songs, and even writing collectively. With the help of your classmates and your master teachers as “studio musicians,” you’ll record a demo of the song you’ve written perform your song on stage. Songwriters are encouraged to bring their instruments, ideas, and accessories. Prior musical experience is not required.
