Introduction to Songwriting
This course is designed to introduce beginner and novice songwriters to basic knowledge, tools, and exercises to get them started in the art of songwriting. Basics of lyric writing, melody, and song form will be discussed in a fun, supportive setting. Knowledge of an instrument is helpful but not required. Students will work individually and in small groups to complete and present an original song in a recital setting at the end of the course. The course also provides the opportunity to have the students original work professionally recorded by the instructor, Kevin Dalton. An MP3 of the song will be provided to the student at the end of the course.
