Love Song Writing
Write a song over the weekend
Expressing heartbreak feelings is usually disgusting and pathetic.
The only way such a self-humiliating activity can feel safe and protected is through a song.
In the workshop you will write lyrics and combine them with improvised melodies.
Then you will fix the melody and construct the skeleton of your song.
Just keep in mind that the worst thing you can do as a contemporary artist is to write love songs.
So.... let’s do the worst thing and let’s do it great.
