This course offers solutions to young musicians who look to become more confident and expressive performers. This unique and forward-thinking course will be both performance and research based—giving students the tools to succeed, and reinforcing them through performance assignments. The goal is to encourage fearless artistry, beginning in the practice room and continuing onstage and beyond. Course will also cover guidelines on what it takes to be a professional in the music business.

Students will learn, observe, analyze and apply the elements of songwriting to create original material. Students will be introduced to song structure, melody, cadence, themed writing, song editing, how to think like a songwriter and so much more.

The root of our examples and structure will stem from R&B, Soul, Hiphop and Trap music to first relate to what students currently listen to and secondly to help students learn the various processes behind songwriting in sounds they already identify with. Guest artist will also be invited to share their professional and industry experience with students, especially as they develop ideas on how to sharetheir music on various platforms (itunes, soundcloud, spinrilla, social media etc). We will also combine elements of production and recording to create our own original material.
