Do you have ideas for songs, but lack the tools to get the song out of your head and onto the page? Come learn how to compose and notate your own melodies and chords! This course will include reading/writing music, key signatures, chord progressions, and more. Assignments will be given at each session which will help you build your skills and put your new knowledge into practice, so come prepared for a little homework! At the end of this course, you will be able to write a complete lead sheet, ready to be performed by a singer and pianist or band! No prior knowledge necessary.
This course also includes access to the instructor via Zoom at weekly office hours, and co-working hours where you can gather online with fellow students and the instructor to do homework in a communal and supportive setting.
What are students saying about this class?
"I found this class empowering. It demystified." - Pete Casanave
"I think that this class put into words and practice a lot of things I've known or felt previously as a singer but had no language or tools to express. Notation and just learning what a note looks like on a page was immensely helpful... My understanding of rhythm notation grew immensely throughout the process..." - Kayla Friend
