Four Wednesdays, beginning September 2
from 10-11:30am


This class meets online on Zoom beginning at 10am on Wednesday, September 2.

Your class confirmation email will contain the Zoom class link. 

Whether you're a T. Swift prolific songwriter or simply want to write your song, you’ll develop your skills as you explore the basic principles of songwriting in various genres, deconstruct favorite songs to see what makes them great, outline (and play) popular song chord progressions, respond to creative writing prompts, and focus on structure, chords, and improvisation. This class will provide a safe space in which to hone your skills, share your work, and jam! All levels welcome.

-Piano keyboard or guitar if you play, but it is fine if you come without instruments
-Notebook for songwriting – not necessary to have music-lined staff paper unless you already write music
-Pencil and pen
-Water to stay hydrated
-Recording device for your final class

You will need to be sure the Zoom app is installed on your device. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing a secure link to join the class.

You will be able to login 15 minutes before the class start time. We recommend logging in before the class starts to make sure you are settled in and ready to go when the class is set to begin.

If you are new to Zoom, please note that we will not be able to help with the app. It is strongly recommended that you navigate Zoom on your own before the class starts to get to know the mute and video settings. Try it out by talking with a friend or family member who has the Zoom app. The Cultural Center uses Zoom to conduct online classes, and I understand that the Zoom meeting will be recorded. By participating in the class, I consent to be recorded and place no restrictions on distribution of the recording.
