MUSPOP 1002 - Song Writing B

North Terrace Campus - Semester 2 - 2020

This course enables students to build on the creative, and technical skills developed through Song writing A, with a focus on the creation and presentation of new original music. An important aspect of this course is the development of skills in producing song charts and scores using Avid's Sibelius software. Seminars introduce composition and song writing techniques, including creative impetus; musical materials comprising rhythm, pitch, melody, chord progressions and song structures; and approaches to writing lyrics. Contemporary music styles and idioms are contextualised in relation to established song-writing forms. Through Workshops, students will learn practical skills in scoring, and skills in the use of Digital Audio Workstations in their song writing.
