MUCP 326 Song Writing Workshop

College of Performing Arts School of Music

1 credit 22.5 hours
300 level undergraduate course

Writing from the heart and connecting to the world, weaving conversational lyrics with poetic phrases, avoiding clich?s and keeping the boredom meter at zero - Songwriting covers everything from what makes a hook a hook and how to set it up properly to structural questions like “is this chorus strong enough to be a chorus or is it really the bridge?” In this interactive and upbeat class, students write and perform their songs and receive feedback on what is working and what could be improved upon. The course is a practical hands-on approach to great songwriting.

Open to majors in the School of Music only.
This course may be completed 2 times for credit
