CATCH THE WIND Songwriting with BeRn
Tools & tips for writing great songs!
At my workshop we will write new songs.
We wont talk in-depth music theory, but briefly discuss the fundamentals of great songwriting: lyrics, melody, harmony and rhythm. We will select a topic(s), pluck the lyrics and melody out of the air, pick the best bits and work from there. We will put them to music and create our songs. We’ll have fun in the process.
Bring an open mind and leave your self-critic at the door. Instruments welcome but not essential.
