Give us your unfinished, overly complicated, half-baked, misidrected, wayward, not-quite-there for whatever reason SONGS. If you love em. Or you want to love them. Or if you simply are looking for a little help getting unfinished songs across the finish line, then this is the joint.
It doesn't matter if you've taken a songwriting class anywhere ever,
(It also doesn't matter what time zone you're in for this)
Stephen Clair will be leading this weekly songwriting REWRITE class. Nine Mondays, Apr 19 - June 14. 7:30-9:00pmEastern time
HOW IT WORKS Each week, we’ll meet for an hour (or more) and we'll go around the zoom room, sharing our works-in-progress. The songwriter will have ample opportunity to talk about what they think is and isn't working, and where they would like to see the song go.
Then, we will hear from the group at large, and by the end of the critique, individual songwriters will be tasked with an assigment, undoubtedly layered, to help them approach the song anew in the coming week. This means we'll hope to hear an updated version of the song the following week.
It will be entirely up to the indiviudal songwriter how many weeks they choose to give to any given song. Each week, you may want to present a different song, or you might feel inspired to keep going with a song for more than two weeks. It will be discretionary. It's meant to serve you, and to help you get better at this process—ultimately on your own.
Monday nights, for 9 weeks. 7:30pm-9:00pm April 19–June 14 Tuition: $275
We will meet over Zoom.I will send full details when we get closer to the start date.
