Vocal Perspectives on Songwriting 2
This course is a natural progression of PSVC-440, Vocal Perspectives on Songwriting 1. An important underlying theme of this course is the knowledge that the singer can be the center and generator of the song. Students will be encouraged to develop catalogues comprised of personal, autobiographical songs created throughout the course. Journaling, active listening, field trips, and highly specific exercises will be employed to generate songwriting and song ideas. Songs will be performed in class. Students must self-accompany in this class, and the semester will culminate in a class performance.
