Take your songwriting skills to the next level in this creative, fun holiday programme that will teach you how to craft an original song that will inspire listeners.
You’ll find out what makes a fantastic song as you learn how to structure songs by creating a chord progression, melody and lyrics. You’ll discover how to arrange a song and will record your masterpiece at the end of the programme.
Experienced songwriter and musical director Brayden Jeffrey will reveal how harmony and melody coexist to support the idea behind a lyric. You’ll explore lyrical conventions such as metaphor, rhyme, assonance and oxymorons.
Feel free to bring your own instruments.
