Songwriting for Teens
Monday November 2, 2020 (8-9pm EST) Live Online!
Instructor: Cindy Latin
In this course, students will be shown foundational songwriting and lyric writing concepts to help them start writing their first songs. Concepts such as rhyme types, rhyme schemes, song “planning” and structural organization, point of view, syllabic stressing, line length, and song form will be discussed. Students will engage in writing exercises to help create content that can be used in songs. They will focus on writing using their senses to create descriptive lines to help highlight emotional content. Popular songs may also be analyzed to display the taught techniques. This course will be beneficial for beginners and for existing songwriters who are looking for more technical skill and knowledge of commonly used terms in songwriting.
