Reading in Translation Book Club
Grackle and Grackle Book Club
1st Thursdays (April, 2nd Thursday)
Not everybody can write Blowing in the Wind (actually just one person can), but anyone can write a song. ANYONE. Surprisingly, it doesn’t take too much to do it. 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. Four 2-hour sessions held on a weekly basis.
