Songwriting Workshops with Mary Amato
July 26, 27, 28 (Tues,Wed,Thur) from 2:30-5:00 p.m.
Do you love to write poetry but struggle with song lyrics that really work? Or are you a songwriter that wants to take it up a notch? Each day we’ll experiment with a different writing prompt for a new song. We’ll explore tone, word choice, contrast, symbol, metaphor, irony, and point of view in lyrics as well as play around with musical structures. If you play an instrument, I strongly encourage you to bring it, even if it’s not an instrument that typically accompanies a singer. If you do not play an instrument, no worries! Just bring yourself.
$50.00 for one workshop; $90.00 for two; $120 for three.
We’ll be doing something different each day.
The workshops will take place in my Silver Spring studio.
