How does Songwriting School work?
Each week, you're sent a Zoom link that gives you access to the class session. The sessions are a hour long with a real life tutor from a programme of songwriting topics. At the end of the class, you're sent a short assignment with support resources to watch or listen to. Students can post their 'homework' on a private members forum in time for the next class.
What if I can't make a class this week?
No problem - your membership entitles you to a private Vimeo link of the class recording. A link will be sent to you once the class is finished and you can view at your own leisure.
*Online weekly classes in real time.
*Private forum for feedback
How big are the classes?
Classes are small and compact to facilitate personal feedback. There are students from all over the country in Songwriting School, from Kaitaia to South Otago and most spots in between! We have amateur and professional songwriters on board. International students are welcome.
What sort of things do you learn?
We look at all the moving parts of a song from structure, lyrics, melody, harmony and rhythm. We cover how to generate and maintain creativity in your songwriting practice. We study great songwriters and different styles. Each month, you get a programme of class topics depending on what year of study you enrol in. Touch base to find out which level would work best.
