Songwriting and Production
Session Dates: September 16, 2022 - January 12, 2023
Final Showcase Session: January 13-15, 2023
Class Time: Thursdays 5:30-7:00 p.m. (online)
Students will dive into the world of songwriting and music production. Students will learn the tools, techniques and fundamentals to write lyrics and music. Using Soundtrap, a collaborative, web-based music production workspace, students will write and record their own original song.
Students will be able to bring their musical ideas to life, learning tools of sound design, engineering, and production. Students do not need to play an instrument to enroll, but those who already play will receive guidance on playing and recording their instrument as it fits into their original song. This is a project based class where each student will write and record their own song. Students can create a new song or are welcome to bring a song they have already been working on.
