Do you love to make up songs but are unsure how to go about writing them down? Do you love writing music but just can't quite communicate how to get what is inside your head out onto a page? Do you wonder how the mechanics of music work and why it has the power to affect us like it does? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this class is the class for you. Just as building a house requires certain materials that must fit together in specific places, constructing a piece of music also requires specific components whose placements are crucial. In this class, you will learn music theory and how to use it to create an original composition which may be performed in our Spring Recital. Whether you are looking for new ways to express yourself or just want to improve your already fabulous song-writing skills, you should enroll in this class!
