Have you started to write or perform your own songs, on your own or in a band, and want to take it to the next level? Do you want to grow your song-writing skills, collaborate with other songwriters, learn how to develop your lyrics and your ‘sound’?

This songwriting ‘workout’ is a chance to explore and learn in a practical way what you can do to get your ideas into song ’shape’, through activities looking at understanding song structure, how to develop melody, harmony, chord progression, hooks, analysing songs and learning from different styles of song.

You’ll explore techniques, tips, and exercises for developing lyrics, telling a ‘story’, and using rhyme, rhythm and melody to get those lyrics across. You’ll also look at some tricky songwriter questions like getting ‘unstuck’, when to move on from a song (or even come back to it) and how do you know when a song is ‘finished’.
