Song writing Workshop Series
"Work of the eyes is done now, go and do heartwork, on all the images imprisoned within you." Rilke
Harmony disarms the songwriting process through
unique, experiential exercises that lead to seeing
songwriting as an everyday activity where one can write a song about anything: breakfast, a bridge, an ant who never returns home. We practice honing
our skills, keeping our senses alert and our hearts open, so that when inspiration does strike we are
ready and able.
We offer a four part series of day long workshops.
We focus on new ways of generating lyrics, understanding our perceptions of what is true and musical knowledge, both theoretical and practical.
At each session we write 2-3 songs and share them. Focused study topics have included:Chord Substitution, Pedal Tone Progressions, Cadences and Turnarounds, Expanding Chord Vocabulary, etc.
