About this event
Are you a singer who wants to write your own songs or energize your lyrics? Are you killing it at karaoke and thinking about adding some of your own songs to your repertoire? Or do you just like singing around the house and want to take it to the next level?
If you answered “yes” to any of the above, this course is for you!
“There are songs inside all of us just waiting to come out,” says Ithaca-based singer and songwriter SingTrece McLaurin. “Let me help you find your songs and share them with the world.”
The seven-week course will cover the basics of lyric songwriting, using poetry, spoken word, and all those loose ideas floating around in your head. You will explore different writing styles and techniques and learn where to find instrumental music to set to your lyrics. You will also get acquainted with the principles of live performance.
The class will adhere to CDC and Tompkins County guidelines for COVID safety. Everyone is welcome and no experience is necessary. All participants will have the opportunity to perform their original work in a showcase following the completion of the course.
