This twelve-week course will examine examples of hit songs and explore the various song structures commonly heard in those songs; how to develop great song ideas and catchy titles; tools for successful lyric writing such as rhyming, alliteration and utilizing contemporary language; learning effective melody writing skills; utilizing repetition in lyrics and melody; and what goes into composing memorable melodies. Class members will be asked to bring examples of what they have learned to every other class for review and discussion. Access and knowledge of a musical instrument such as guitar or piano is helpful but not necessary.
