Description

Promo video for my on-line class at Udemy. The course is called "SONGWRITING the creative process for beginners. It's designed to communicate how the creative process works. And it's a little like explaining the unexplainable. But I try to take a step by step approach to getting prepared and how to "court the muse" in a somewhat non-new-agey way. Every songwriter has their own method of writing unique to their own process. But there are still commonalities. I try to show examples of how other songwriters work. What they were thinking. I try to stay away from rules as much as possible in this course. My goal is opening up the infinite possibilities in songwriting and being in touch with the ones that fit each individual's style and personality. Lastly I try to focus on what feels good to them as they progress through the course. When you have so many options, things can become confusing. They become clearer as you listen to the feelings you get from the music you make. What are you trying to say? Why do you want to express yourself in such a vulnerable way? These kind of questions need to be thoughtfully explored to understand what elements come together for you as a songwriter.
