COVID-19 UPDATE, 5/18/20: We hope you are all staying safe and well as we all do our part to look out for one another in response to the pandemic.
In an effort to do our part in protecting our community and flattening the curve of infection, The Songwriting School successfully moved all previously active classes online on Wednesday 3/11/20. With the mix of video conferencing technology and the magnificent and adaptive student and instructor community, we have not missed a beat. We are excited to welcome you back, virtually, for Spring classes!
SPRING 2020 classes are enrolling now and will meet ALL ONLINE. These classes will be fully interactive--with both real-time interaction with your instructor and classmates AND on-demand archives of each class for your access, on your own schedule. In the event State and City officials deem it safe and appropriate to allow small in-person meetings at some point later in the Spring, we will keep students posted about those developments and how The Songwriting School will proceed. In the event a class is able to meet in person, we will retain BOTH online and in-person opportunities to include distance learners and address the needs of those at risk or who would otherwise prefer to stay online-only.
In addition, there are also online classes that are on-demand only. In other words, if you want to study on your own time and do not want to attend interactive sessions, you are welcome to learn in this self-paced manner. These classes also have opportunities to get questions answered and receive feedback from your instructor.
Questions? Want help picking the right class? Need to discuss tuition arrangements in these trying times? CONTACT US HERE or call 818-848-7664.
SUMMER 2020 classes are enrolling now also, with class offerings and dates being announced daily. We will be prepared to run those classes meaningfully ONLINE and will await the guidance of officials for the safe and appropriate way to proceed if any IN-PERSON opportunities are appropriate.
The Songwriting School continues to follow the COVID-19 (novel Coronavirus) developments closely and seeks to make decisions that protect our community, foster creative growth, and acknowledge our responsibilities to the larger community in this pandemic. We seek to create an environment that is safe and comfortable for you while you work at this important pursuit of your artistic development.
Please stay safe and look out for each other. At times like this your music might seem insignificant in the face of hardship. But in the face of hardship, your music might be just what the rest of us need. Here's to you. Thank you for your important part in making this creative community of The Songwriting School the positive and resilient one it has been for the past eleven-plus years.

If this is your first time enrolling in a class at The Songwriting School, there is a one-time new student registration fee of $35. You will not owe this again for future classes, nor will you owe this for private lessons or individual workshops or free and open events. You can pay the registration fee at the time of your registration or at the start of your class.
