Whether you are new to songwriting and would like to take your music beyond the shower, or you have already written songs but would like to have a better grounding in the basics, the New School's six-week Songwriting Workshop, taught by acclaimed songwriter and musician Kieran McEvoy, will help you to develop your creative ideas – in any musical style – and turn them into finished songs.
Songwriting Workshop classes are intended to be instructive, encouraging and collaborative. And participants whose primary interest is lyric writing, music writing – or both – are welcome.
Participants showcase some of the material they have written – both individually and collectively – in a final performance, open to the public. You are encouraged to invite family and friends along!
‘This course gave me great confidence in songwriting, and to have the guidance of a professional songwriter was so helpful. The course helped me both lyrically and musically to realise my songwriting potential, and I am now constantly writing new material.’
– A. Bradley
‘Kieran’s relaxed way of teaching makes you feel at home on the course and gives you the confidence to perform in front of your fellow classmates. I can’t believe I stood up in front of a room full of people and performed my own songs! It was an amazing experience.’
– F. Hannon
‘I finished four songs and found my melodic voice, which I thought was impossible as I don’t play an instrument. I’d like to do a more advanced class with Kieran!’
