This seminar, in a Master Class format, will use participants' songs to demonstrate the rewriting process. We will focus on various issues, including verse development, productive repetition, phrasing, effective matching of lyric and melody, structure and prosody. We'll try to focus particularly on polishing those small bumps that distract the listener and let air escape from the song'stires.
