Song Writing for Adults
with Martin Swinger
Music inspires hope, unites hearts, changes moods, and challenges thinking. If you can carry a tune and play a little bit of guitar or piano, you’ll enjoy this opportunity to write your own song. We’ll review basic melodic choices, learn about song construction, discuss what makes a great lyric and talk about how particular songs have impacted our world. We’ll write a song as a group and then each person will unleash his/her creativity to write their own original work, with Martin’s assistance. Bring an idea for a song theme you would like to develop and a guitar, if you play. The ability to read music is not necessary for this class, just bring a notebook and your favorite pen!
