If you’ve ever dreamed of writing a song, recording it, and having a copy of it, this is the class for you. The class creates music from the ground up — focusing on the music, the lyrics, and the ways they come together in a thorough and supportive environment. The goal of this workshop is that you come up with a new song (and of course learn how to make many more). We’ll go through the theory of the song and its different examples, and we’ll plant the seed, nourish and finally harvest your creation, class after class. A bit of musical knowledge is needed, but just a bit. Six 2-hour sessions held on a weekly basis. Listen below to “I ♥ You Tanner” by student Randi Faust for an example of both the amazing songs that come out of the class, and the incredible musical backdrop Lucas adds to each class.
