Description: How do you write a song? Where do you get ideas? What comes first, the lyrics or the melody? Should a song ever start with a chorus? Can a song ever end on something other than the root? How long does writing a song take? What’s a bridge? Does this guitar make me look fat? While there aren’t pat answers to any of these questions, they are certainly discussed. We’re not going to learn how to write a hit song for someone else to sing — we’re going to write a beautiful, personal and meaningful song for YOU to sing (hence, the Singer/Songwriter moniker). Whether you want to make a dime from performing, or it’s just a hobby and passion, the singer/songwriter craft is still a fun process to learn. I have no degree in this field, nor any formal training. I’ve just been playing my original songs for audiences for the past thirty years. That’s what I know, and what I’ve learned along the way, and continue to learn, I’m happy to share with you.

Genres explored for this four week course will be Americana, Bluegrass, Country, Folk, Gospel, Pop, Rock and other acoustic styles of roots music.

    Mike is a great teacher. His feedback is worth its weight in gold. The class was so good, I did it twice! Can I get a discount if I enroll again?

  2. Angel Gunn

    Michael Clem is a gem. Take his class again and again. Be prepared to laugh and grin. Songwriting can be fun!
