The second in this series of three, weekly, standalone, interactive presentations will cover how to use imagery, storytelling and rhyme to develop your songs.
By analysing contemporary and classic songs 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 beginner and intermediate songwriters, whether pure lyricists or composers.
Each week in the series is designed to be standalone. Two subsequent weeks will cover comprehensive techniques available to develop and polish those ideas into finished lyrics:
There is more than enough information each week to be taken as a standalone session and the price is discounted by 25% to £15. However, sign up for all three sessions and there will be a further 10% refunded to £40.
Tea, coffee and water will be provided free of charge. There are only 12 places available so please book in advance.
Nearest tubes are Southwark, Waterloo or Blackfriars.
