About the Event
Wednesday Evenings February 22-March 29 from 6:30-8:30 PM
Songs can be powerful tools for preserving and honoring story, expressing emotion, and sharing one’s unique perspective. In this interactive workshop participants will work together in a non-judgmental, supportive space to access their unique stories and translate them into song. The sessions will explore topics such as: What are the nuts and bolts of songwriting and how can we utilize them to convey our message? What makes a memorable melody? How does song form influence the communication of a narrative? Under the guidance of instructor Beth Wood, aspiring writers will explore tools for beginnings and engage in wordplay and writing exercises. They’ll refine their awareness in noticing the choices that songwriters make and will write, share, listen and learn from each other. Participants should bring an open heart, an open mind and a curious spirit. All levels of songwriting experience are welcome.
Instructor Beth Wood says, “I LOVE sharing what I have learned and what works for me in songwriting. I love supporting other songwriters in their creative process and in sharing their work. I love what happens when people who love songs gather to geek out about songs! And I believe we have much to learn from each other.”
What we will do in our time together:
• Practical writing exercises/games
• Share ideas, songs, and creations with each other
• Examine nuts and bolts of songwriting, a mysterious process
• Revel in the mystery
• Deep listening
• Share in discussions about songs and the creative process
• Work from prompts to generate new songs
