In addition to my musical performances, I will have a full menu of classes to choose from this fall if you are interested in furthering your own musical adventure!

There is still time to sign up for this semester's MUS 146: Songwriting Class at Washtenaw Community College! But don't delay, classes start Mon. 8/29!

Let's explore what makes a song great. Together we'll build the skills and confidence necessary to turn your ideas into finished and fully realized songs. In addition to learning the basic concepts of lyric, melody, harmony and rhythm, we will explore song structure, write using all five of our senses and learn how to craft memorable melodies. If you're new to songwriting, this class will help you build your skills from the very beginning. If you're already experienced, it's a safe space to create and an excellent opportunity to add to your creative portfolio in the presence of supportive accountability partners!
