Kirkland Performance Center

Songwriting 101 (Youth)

with Emily Persha


Class has begun

This class meets once a week on Mondays from 5pm - 6:30pm

For grades 6-12

Have you ever wanted to write a song but didn’t know where to start...or have you started many songs but don’t know how to finish them? We’ve got you! Jump into songwriting 101 and you’ll come out with a finished song, and an opportunity to perform your song infront of others (if you want)! No previous music experience necessary. 

Course Description: This class takes participants on a guided journey through the songwriting process with the help of professional songwriters and guest artists. In conjunction with “The Bushwick Book Club” you will have the opportunity to write a song inspired by your favorite book or story! Learn about different songwriting methods as you discover yours. We’ll explore and dissect various song forms, instrumentation, and lyric content. We’ll try different writing prompts and offer tips and tricks to get over blocks and doubts.

Each person brings a story, life experience, and value to their craft. In this safe and supportive environment, we’ll have the opportunity for reflection, feedback, and performance. We look forward to creating with you!
