Before “Every Breath You Take” or “No Woman, No Cry” or “Give it Up” or “I Will Always Love You” or “Lover” — there was Sting, Bob Marley, KC & the Sunshine Band, Dolly Parton, and Taylor Swift, fooling around with ideas and tunes, seeing if they could translate what was going on in their worlds to song.

That’s what you could do, too. If you’ve ever dreamed of not just writing a song, but hearing it put to music and then sung (by yourself or your friends), this is the class for you!

Here, you can create music from the ground up — playing with words that become lyrics, sounds that become tunes, and the ways they intertwine with each other before reaching out to the universe where, hopefully, they’ll get stuck in a lot of brains.

With a little theory and lots of examples, we’ll help you nourish and strengthen your creations. Whether you’re into jazz or folk rock, ranchero or trance, pop, hip hop, or something you’ve just invented: the thorough and supportive environment in this class will help you find the right words for the right notes to make music.

Everybody will leave this class with a few ideas to work more on, and one finished song, set to music and sung.

A bit of musical knowledge is needed, but just a bit.

Lucas Masllorens is a journalist and musician. As a journalist he has produced and hosted a radio show devoted to jazz and created music collections for magazines, among other projects.
