Online Songwriting Workshop: Writing Verses

January 14, 2021 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The first 2021 MN Association of Songwriters Monthly Songwriting Workshop will be All About Verses. We will be listening, dissecting, and learning about the function of verses in songwriting. Each section of a song has a job that helps create a story. We will be diving into what makes a good verse, and what information you should include in your verses. Verses are very different from other song sections. Some of the topics we will explore include:

What questions do your verses answer?
What kind of language usually make up verses?
How does a verse affect melody of a song?
Where can you generate verse ideas?
How can Harmony affect your verses?
Common Verse Structure
Common Verse Rhyme Scheme
Using structure to create contrast and prosody
