MUS345: Songs and Songwriting

Course Info

Songs and Songwriting will offer undergraduates the opportunity to study songs and songcraft in an intense, supportive small-group workshop. Songs are mysterious musical forms. They can be as simple as nursery rhymes or as complicated as miniature symphonies. They are inherently multidisciplinary, engaging one's ear for language as much as for music. They demand a knack for melody as well as an architectural sense of form and proportion. They rely on timeworn formulas and cliches, but there is no blueprint for writing them; a great song always catches you off guard.
