The Songwriting Masterclass: Better Lyrics… Better Stories… Better Songs with Nathan Brown

The Songwriting Masterclass: Better Lyrics… Better Stories… Better Songs with Nathan Brown

Presented by Gemini Ink Writing Arts Center at Gemini Ink Writing Arts Center

This workshop deals with finding a song’s “main goal,” its central theme, and then explores the various ways we can “drive home” that story for other listeners to appreciate. We’ll take a look at the inner workings of several song forms and structures so we can better understand how to apply our particular stories to those classic structures.
Who should take this class? Anyone with an interest in songwriting, no previous experience required.
In this class, participants will learn these aspects of songwriting:

Topic and lyric generation
The four key structures—or song designs—to hang our stories on
Detail and Description… but just the right amount
Rethinking titles and first lines
Finding a song’s main goal, and sticking to it
Each participant will walk way with at least a first verse and the chorus– a great start to their own song!
