Do you dream of taking your music beyond singing in the shower? A song unleashes its power and who knows where it’ll go? Songs fuel desire, inspire hope, break hearts, rock worlds, unite people, shake booties, turn blahs into blues, and sometimes make us feel as good as James Brown. Learn songwriting from Emmy-Award Winning Songwriter Kevin Briody! The class meets on Thursdays from 7:30 – 9:00 p.m., January 19 – March 9.
Students will also have the opportunity to have a Q&A with artists in our upcoming Doyle Coffin Architecture Singer Songwriter Series! You don’t have to play an instrument to write a song, in Songwriting with Kevin Briody you can take your poetry or thought and learn the elements of songwriting with the Emmy Award winner. Award Winning Musician Kevin Briody will teach you how to structure songs, create “hooks,” craft lyrics, manipulate melody, rhythm and harmony, merge words with music, and write toward genre. Whether you favor pop, rock, hip-hop, R&B, country, music, lyrics, or both, he’ll show you how to write songs that soar! No musical background required – if you have a great idea and love to write songs….now is your time!
