Songwriting with Ian
October 4th -22nd, Wednesdays and Fridays from 4-6:30
Topanga Community Center
This workshop will focus on the creation of new songs. It will employ innovative approaches to lyric writing, and the creation of melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic content. Participants will develop a deeper understanding of lyrics, song structure and music theory. The workshop will also explore methods for spontaneous creativity and thinking outside the box. While not required, some knowledge of music theory and competence on at least one instrument or voice will prove helpful for our work together.
Ian Turner has worked professionally as a musician, songwriter, composer and music producer in New York City for the past decade. He is a graduate of Bard College with a multitude of experiences in music, dance, theatre, film and literature as well as teaching and working with youth.
