Course Catalog

The Songwriting Challenge

All Levels | No matter their experience, everyone can write a song. This course will focus on quick prompts that get to the heart of lyrics and composition on any instrument. Songwriters Robin Edwards (of Lisa Prank) and Bree McKenna (of Tacocat) will discuss the creative philosophies of artists like Lynda Barry and Julia Cameron and apply their ideas to songwriting through exercises and a weekly songwriting challenge, which we will workshop together in class.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
