Calling all karaoke stars and shower singers! Write your own songs with Brandon at Guitar Shed in his Songwriting Workshop where you’ll learn some of the basic "rules" for songwriting, and in true rock 'n' roll fashion, learn how to break them.
Speak in rhyme all the time? Want to write songs but don't know where to start? Anyone with a basic knowledge of music or poetry can write a song, and Guitar Shed
is opening up their doors for a star-worthy songwriting workshop.
Your instructor, Brandon, is a local musician and Guitar Shed teacher who has been writing songs for over 15 years, both as a solo artist and with various groups. He approaches songwriting from both a self-taught perspective and under the systems of the classical tradition. In his class, you’ll learn some of the basic "rules" for songwriting, and in true rock 'n' roll fashion, learn how to break them.
Grab a friend and sign up to enjoy some great, local sips while learning how to put together a melody, chords, and lyrics to create a lasting piece of art to call your own. You'll discuss common song forms, study some techniques of the great songwriters throughout history, and work in small groups to begin creating original music centered around a common theme. Bringing your instrument is encouraged but is not necessary, nor is playing an instrument at all!
So if you want to top the charts with your new hit, or just have a few drinks with your friends while learning the basics of songwriting, look no further! Grab a friend, a pen and paper, and get yourself a seat in this exclusive class!
