A fun show with audience participation as well as a tribute to our WWII folks.

Introduction to Songwriting 

Instructor: Paul Harrison

 

Paul is an experienced, performing songwriter who has recorded

five CDs of original music in genres from

folk/pop/blues to instrumental music to spiritual songs. 

Paul holds a Bachelors Degree in English Literature. 

His goal at DCA is to help others

achieve their goals in an enjoyable and relaxed atmosphere, and to promote music activities and

community in Dorchester and throughout the mid-shore area.

This class is designed for individuals who may never have written a song but would like to do so.  You don’t have to play an instrument and no experience needed…just an interest in exploring songwriting in a supportive environment.

Activities include:  discuss songs we like and why they appeal to us, using various exercises to explore topics to write about, considering what makes effective lyrics and start writing them, and learning other helpful tips for writing effective songs.

Bring something to write with ( pen, pencil, crayons….anything you like) and paper.  Yes, some songs have been started on napkins!

One 6 week session:  Wednesdays, 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.  January 18th through February 22nd.  $75 for DCA members, and $105 for non-members.  Call: 410-228-7782 to register for this class.

In March, Paul will have “Songwriting Adventures.”  See our new catalog or website for details.
