During the pandemic, we are fully interactive ONLINE in this Class For ROOTS Graduates Exclusively designed to help you, well, make songs! There are two sections, Saturdays or Tuesdays, 10:30am-1:30pm. There are at least 8 meetings in each round in each season, and you are allowed to move between sections if you have conflicts.
FOR SUMMER 2021, Songmakers will meet intermittently with this schedule:
FOR FALL 2021 we return to weekly meetings with 10 class meetings in either the Tuesday or Saturday session, starting SAT 9/25 or TU 9/28.
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 online/on-demand and 2-week Roots Intensive in the Summer and at various times in the year. We welcome you once you have graduated from THE ROOTS!
Looking for a song workshopping setting and have not taken The Roots?
When: This course meets Saturdays, ongoing, or Tuesdays 10:30-1pm. An eligible songwriter can join at any time.
