Hello and many thanks for checking out my workshop page! It’s been a privilege

to take my ongoing lyric workshop online, allowing me to share it with so many of

you from so many different places. My natural bent is to be an “in-person”

person, but I’m doing my best to get up to speed with this new form of

communication and learning.

Here’s what I can tell you about the workshop… the course is designed to be

freeform, with the goal of providing broad-based exposure to many aspects of

professional lyric writing, including (and especially) on-the-fly creative

blockbusting. While there certainly will be elements of form discussion and

topical lectures, the true purpose of these workshops is in-class development of

creative work, both individually and collaboratively. All levels of experience are

welcome, and students can join anytime. The exercises often touch upon

surprises, joys and creative challenges I have experienced in my own 30+ years

of professional lyric writing.

As a rule, ALL sessions include:

1) 2.5 to 3 hour session format (depending on class size);

2) An in-class, creative blockbusting exercise;

3) An optional homework assignment applicable to either existing work or the

work engendered in class exercises

Class sizes are small, usually between 3-14 students. As I put more sessions

together, I might have some larger classes. As a rule, standard sessions will

have a maximum size of 12 participating, with perhaps a few more auditing and

listening. Classes with less than 3 students signed up are subject to reschedule.
