This interactive presentation will cover how to use Imagery, Storytelling and Rhyme to develop your song ideas.
Writers block comes not from a shortage of what to write about but how to write those ideas effectively.
By analysing contemporary and classic songs from The Beatles to Billie Eilish, Dylan to Stormzy you will learn the elements of what makes a great lyric and invaluable advice on each of those elements that contribute to a balanced whole.
The session is suitable for all songwriters, whether pure lyricists or composers.
Also check out the subsequent session on Wordplay, Rhetoric & Singability:
