Focus on improving existing material, creating new songs, and exploring technique. Musicians and lyricists will collaborate, revise and critique under the guidance of the instructor. Because a basic understanding of songwriting theory is assumed, students will work to put their knowledge into practice. This class provides a great opportunity for those with current theatrical songwriting projects to receive feedback and mentoring. Students leave the class with a portfolio of their work.
Class culminates with a staged reading of student songs performed by Training Center students and alumni.
Prerequisites: Students must be graduates of the Music Improv, Conservatory, or Writing program; completed Comedic Songwriting 1; or be given permission by the head of the Music Program.
