No, Taylor Swift is not going to be leading our monthly songwriting workshop, but we are going to look at some of her hits to see what makes them tick.
You can think of it as reverse engineering. Using tools and structure to write your own songs.
Taylor is definitely a student of the craft of songwriting, and her body of work shows that she knows how to write some very good songs. She is prolific, talented, and inspiring.
In this workshop, we will look at things like, rhyme schemes, song structure, melody, chords, phrasing and more! Maybe you can become the next Taylor Swift!
