ABOUT THE PROGRAM:
Prosody, the most important concept in great writing: All the elements of
your song should work together to support the song's central message and
emotion. This seminar will show you tools and techniques to make your song
stronger and more focused, using structure and phrasing to highlight
important ideas, and deepen emotional impact -- techniques that have helped
Pat's students, including John Mayer and Gillian Welch, win Grammys and
write number one songs.
Pat's Masterclasses are legendary. In these events, watch him
take already strong songs and put them through a workout until they emerge
trim and toned. In this session, Pat will look at participant's songs, taking
time to work out any kinks, focusing on prosody between the intent of the
song and structure, rhyme, rhythm, point of view, phrasing and many other
tools that have proven so useful to Grammy winners John Mayer and Gillian
Welch and seminar participants across the globe. No one demands more of a
song than Pat, and he can show you how to take it all the places it could go
to cross the "finished" line, while millions cheer.
