When chords, melodies, and lyrics blend together in harmony, a new song is born. This interactive class will explore the many components of a great song. A live teacher will guide the class in real time to discuss and showcase different elements of songwriting, including rhyme, rhythm, melody, chords, and lyrics. The class is designed to inspire creativity, and the live group dynamic will encourage sharing and feedback.
