ENROLL in any SUMMER Class and take 100 OFF the Co-Writing Songs Tuition (makes it 199)!
This hands-on class will teach you the artistry and business of co-writing in a professional, real-world setting. Under the tutelage of former Motown Staff Writer Alan Roy Scott, this "sandbox" of a class fosters learning by doing. After the first hour's conversation on various real-world aspects of the business of collaboration, the last part of class involves writing on a different assignment with different collaborators, each week. In the Final Week the class writes for and with either some of LA's most talented Up-and-Comers or established Hit Writers.
As one recent alum remarked: "I come each week empty-handed and leave with a song. Magic!" Cheers to that.
This program is especially for me if you. . .
You will explore different concepts, techniques, and skills of songwriting in each class and then tackle specific exercises and assignments with co-writing partners. You will have the chance to collaborate with many different writers as you search for positive and successful creative relationships you’ll want to maintain outside of class.
You will write songs every week. Class time will be devoted to writing, collaborating, critiquing songs, and receiving feedback from the instructor and special industry guests.
