Course Description

Dig into the craft and artistry of songwriting using piano/keyboard or string instruments and singing to develop your own songs. You will focus on contemporary music, including folk and blues elements, the basis for pop, hip-hop, country, and jazz. Each day, your instructor will give individual guidance as you listen and study great songs from these traditions. Then, you will create and record your compositions, assisted by a professional musician. Perform your own or other students’ work at the end of the course. Students should play a piano/keyboard or chordal instrument and be familiar with traditional music notation or tablature.  Ages exceptions are made based on experience.
