Songwriting is all about bringing the inspiration from a writer’s life into their music. The focus of Jesse’s songwriting workshops is to help students build an individualized practice method that will help them harness their life experience to craft songs. Through building a writing schedule, journaling, and setting goals, students will develop the creative habits that will permanently serve them as musicians and people. The other half of the course is based on concepts of composition. Jesse ensures that students at any playing level will have new ideas to stimulate their song writing, with just enough challenge to keep the process motivating. This is not a one size fits all program; certain ideas or chord shapes will suit different players best. By the end of the workshop, each student will leave with a personalized curriculum so that they can continue to grow and create in their own practice.
