Course Description:

Do you love music and long to contribute to the most exciting and pretentious of humanity’s artistic disciplines? Have you always had a song in your heart but struggled to come up with lyrics to match? Do you love writing poetry but find that nobody wants to read it and always asks you to sing it instead? Do you find yourself struck by torrential darkness deep inside and thunderous envy when you watch another person perform or write music? Then it sounds like you might wanna learn how to write a song!

In this class, we’ll learn the basics of how to play the ukulele, write chord progressions that sound good, give constructive feedback to our peers, and arrange songs in the chorus-verse-chorus structure used by 99% of modern music. We’ll listen to examples from throughout music history, learn how to write melodies, and how to tell stories in our lyrics with exposition, conflict, and resolution.
