SONGMAKERS is a class exclusively for graduates of THE ROOTS songwriting program. The class strikes a vital balance between providing an ongoing curriculum of growth for the writers and weekly workshopping opportunities to gain feedback on songs and songs-in-progress. Exercises range from idea-generation to lyric development, from hook-writing to song structure analysis, from speed-based drills to ongoing projects, all in the spirit of helping each writer cultivate and refine a unique writerly voice and keep making songs.
Members of the class typically range from full-time singer/songwriters to aspiring writers to points in between. What they have in common: the shared knowledge, vocabulary, and skills of THE ROOTS, a passion for their unique art, and a mutual respect for one another and the creation of songs that matter.
Eligibility: Exclusively for graduates of THE ROOTS songwriting program. If you are interested in Songmakers and have not taken THE ROOTS, there are Tuesday evening or Saturday afternoon sections most seasons, with a 2-week Roots Intensive in the Summer and at various times in the year.
