Illuminate your songwriting: Involve your audience more deeply in your song by creating the most potent lens for them to look through. This seminar will focus on Point of View as a tool, illustrating and understanding all the possible angles for viewing, and their effects on the listener.

Writing Lyrics to Melody
There's no use writing a great lyric and a great melody if they don't work together. An unfortunate setting of a word or phrase can sink the emotion of the song, calling your listener's attention away from WHAT you are saying to HOW you are saying it. This seminar shows you how to get the most out of your lyrics by combining them accurately and effectively with melody.
Saturday, July 25:
Phrasing: The Body Language of Your Song
This seminar will give you important keys to phrasing your lyrics for the most impact and support of meaning. Working with rhythms and placements, you'll learn how to make sure that the line, like body language, helps to really deliver the emotion you intend. This is another "can't miss" seminar -- it's bound to take your writing to the next level.
