Songwriting Workshop: May 9 “Compose Yourself”

“Compose Yourself” is a day-long journey into the heart and soul of songwriting with world-renowned composer and singer-songwriter Lourdes Pérez. This workshop will assist individuals with no prior experience writing lyrics or composing music to move through a process of writing songs.

Perez will engage the participants in an animated process of gathering words, phrases and themes to be combined to create song lyrics. Participants will then be introduced to choosing various chord progressions, rhythms and the emotions these choices evoke.  Using this method, melodies and rhythms will then be selected and applied to the lyrics.
The small group uses this method to compose a collective song by the end of the morning, which then opens a window to imagine and create an individual song by the afternoon, with Perez’s one-on-one guidance.
