Song Writing with IMSCC
Register now for our new song writing course!
Don’t overthink it! This course is for anyone, any instrument, at any level who wants to learn to compose and finish a song, which will be performed at the end of the session. Through class analysis of popular song form, and some basic chord theory, Chris will teach the class and assist each student one-on-one with the tools and tricks he has used as a professional songwriter. If you have unfinished ideas, would like to learn new approaches to lyrics and music, or have never composed anything before but have a big interest, this course will give you some inspiration to get going.
We will meet Monday through Friday, June 25-29, 10-11:45 am
