Hello Songwriters and Aspiring Songwriters,
Let's write some songs this summer in one of Beacon Music Factory's most popular classes.
Stephen Clair will be leading a weekly songwriting class: 8 Wednesdays, July 1 - Aug 19. 7:30-8:30pm EST
Each week, we’ll meet for an hour (or more) and I’ll treat you to song examples to consider, riddles, a few new ways of examining songs you know, and then, most importantly, you will be given a multi-layered songwriting PROMPT or assignment, chock full of rules to inspire you, parameters that will help focus your thinking and still layers for you to chew on. Past students tell us over and over how much they learn and how inspired they become by these assignments. It is exhilirating and satisfying when you are eager to dig in and begin writing rather than feeling daunted by a blank page. That's what this class is all about. Throughout the course I’ll provide extra pointers, some harmonic, some lyrical, some conceptual, to keep you going.
You will write a new song each week. I am pretty sure you will amaze yourself. Your songs will be shared in class each week, and we’ll have useful and substantial discussions about each student’s song; and then, of course, … you will receive a new song assignment.
Critically-acclaimed songwriter and owner of Beacon Music Factory, Stephen Clair has been teaching super successful songwriting classes like this to adults and kids for years—both in the classroom and online. Clair's very recent pandemic-inspired song “Welcome To The World Now” has been in rotation on WFUV 90.7FM in NY since April.
Wednesday nights, for 8
7:30pm-8:30pm (although probably more like 9:00)
We will meet over Zoom. I will send full details as you register.
I am really looking forward to seeing you write loads of new songs.
If you have any questions, please get in touch,
