WHAT TO EXPECT
1. Songwriting Expertise: Our workshop focuses on the art of songwriting. If you're a qualified student who has submitted your self-written songs in advance, be prepared for a deep dive into the creative process. I will project your song's lyrics on a screen for all to see and provide valuable insights and feedback.
2. Interactive Learning: As an active participant, you'll perform your song, and I will intervene when necessary. Interruptions usually fall into two categories:
- Improving Songwriting: If your song's lyrics or structure need refining, I will work with you on aspects such as alliteration, vivid word choices, avoiding clichés, effective use of repetition, enhancing emotional resonance, and song structure.
- Enhancing Performance: If your lyrics need better phrasing for a more impactful performance, I will guide you in context. You may accompanying yourself, have a friend accompany you or have me do it with piano or guitar.
3. Audience Engagement: Our workshop isn't just for active participants. As a passive observer, you'll also benefit from the masterclass experience. You'll witness firsthand the transformation of songs and gain valuable insights into the creative process.
4. Q&A Session: Have burning questions about songwriting, performance, or the music industry? Feel free to ask! I welcome questions from both active and passive participants, making the workshop an interactive and engaging experience for all.
5. Practice and Performance: After the workshop, you'll have the opportunity to practice your improved song on your own. We conclude with a special performance recital event, where you'll have the chance to showcase what you've learned to invited guests.
