MAKEFEST 2021 – SONGWRITING MASTERCLASS WITH A PLACE FOR US AND NATALIE MCCOOL
Join A Place For Us and Natalie McCool for a Masterclass in songwriting, deconstructing one of Natalie’s own pop songs. Deconstructing a Song: Writing a song in reverse…A unique insight into songwriting, deconstructing one of Natalie’s songs ‘Pins’. Looking at the concept: What’s the story behind the song? What’s the message?
Themes: What is the mood, and how do we create it through words?
Metaphors & writing tips: Creative ways of telling a story – how do we say something without actually…saying it? Showing the listener your story through vivid imagery, rather than telling them.
Melody: How can melody influence how the listener is feeling?
Harmony: Creating mood through major / minor and note range
Rhythm: How can we make the listener feel something just by changing the rhythm?
Structure: How do I structure my song to make my story effective?
This masterclass will help you get started with songwriting, find your voice & tell your story. It will also give you the tools to understand melody, rhythm, harmony & structure.
