FSPA to Offer New Songwriting Class

Franklin School for the Performing Arts (FSPA) is excited to announce a new class offering this year. New faculty member Cordelia Tapping will introduce a Songwriting course to the school. The class will focus on the process of songwriting by exploring each of its elements in depth: lyrics, melody, harmony, rhythm, and the ways they create emotional impact. Part of each class will be devoted to listening to and discussing songs from a variety of different genres and artists. 

Students will be encouraged to bring in material, whether it be a song they love, a poem that speaks to them, or something they have written or are in the process of writing that they would like to workshop.
