You have probably seen videos on how hundreds of songs are written over the same chord progressions. And while there is nothing new to invent in terms of chord progressions, you can learn how to support your song’s theme using various compositional elements. For example, we’ll look at how to compose ‘happy’ and ‘sad’ songs in both, major and minor scales, how and why to contrast song sections, or what types of development tools you can use to keep the listener engaged until the end. And of course, we will also look at ‘hit formulas’ that the music industry has been (over)using for decades! This course will add value to your compositional skills whether you’re a beginner songwriter or you’ve been writing for a while but perhaps more instinctively rather than intentionally.
For this workshop you need a basic understanding of chord progressions and how Roman numerals are used to represent chord names – e.g.: In the scale of “C”, “Cmaj” is a “I” chord, “Dmin” a “ii” chord, “F” a “IV” chord, etc…
You do not need to know how to read sheet music.
