Intensive workgroup sessions will aim to develop skills in understanding and identifying structures in songs, and also to develop knowledge of techniques employed in songwriting. Discussions of students' songwriting will be at the centre of the course and will build upon structural analysis of well-known songs. Workshops will include peer critique and in-class writing exercises in order to develop a better understanding of how songs are composed. Different forms of songs and different songwriting styles will be analysed and compared in order to gain a deeper understanding of song. The course will also include information and discussion about the business side of songwriting and publishing. This course is suitable for students new to this subject area.
