Hands-on workshop for poets and songwriters. Any composer can set a poem to music – you just put the musical notes under the syllables and ask someone to sing it. Most are unmemorable because most classical writers do not understand the basics of songwriting. In this class, we will look at what constitutes a memorable song: melody, emotional theme, simplicity, meaningful words – and transform a poem into a song. The goal is: if you have never heard the poem before, you will understand it from listening to the song.
