Discover the art behind creatively crafting words and making inspiring music with a musical artist. Songwriting is a creative way to express your thoughts for others to hear. In this program, you will learn some of the basic fundamentals of song writing. Absorb ideas about form and structure from the music around you and get inspired by your songs’ melodic and lyrical direction. Improve your craft as a songwriter with brainstorming, writing exercises, and practice. If you’re stuck in a musical rut, or want to take a stab at this artistic method, discover some simple ideas to help you along the way. All levels welcome.

Our Expressive Arts programming is supported in part by a grant from the Benjamin Benedict Green-Field Foundation.
