Deep Dive: Bringing Your Song to Life
Oct 10, 2021 - Nov 5, 2021
 

Singing or playing music is a uniquely personal experience - it can make us feel excited, nostalgic, mournful or euphoric. But adding emotion to a song is easier said than done. How do you get out of your head? Have you finished working on a song, yet it seems like something is still missing? How do you transform your song from a series of notes into music?

 

In this online deep dive, you and your classmates will learn methods and techniques that can bring your song to life. Together, we’ll explore how to tell a story through music, how to weave emotion into your piece, and how to connect with an audience - even one you can’t see! Your classes will culminate in a Zoom concert, attended by family, friends and teachers. Come explore how to take your music making to the next level.
