Guided by School of Musical Traditions instructor McKinley Corbley, you will learn how to use your innate ability to write songs by trusting your ear and tapping into your own inner voice. You will learn about chords and chord progressions and how to combine them with lyrics into a coherent song structure, with weekly opportunities to share new material and receive feedback. This is a great opportunity to get to know other burgeoning songwriters in a relaxed, supportive environment.
This course is geared towards adults who are intrigued by the idea of writing songs and never written before. Ideally, students will have access to a piano, guitar, or ukulele. No prior musical experience necessary.
