Course Name: Songwriting
This course is an invitation to let your inner songwriter step into the sunlight. All it takes is a simple "yes" and you'll be climbing that windy hill, marveling at the view.
The course will start by examining the tools available to you, all revolving around the essential concept of prosody. You'll learn to use your tools to enhance your message-to work compositionally at the same time you're developing your ideas.
