Join singer-songwriter Tyler Kealey as he performs and dissects some of his original songs to share his approach on the song writing process. Song writing has fascinated Tyler since the beginning of his career in music nearly 25 years ago.
During the workshop, Tyler will discuss some of the literary and musical tools he uses help craft songs including:
- Breaking down the structure of a song into its component of Verse, Chorus and Bridge.
- Looking for the rhythmical and melodic value in a sentence or phrase
- Using certain musical chord combinations to help colour the lyrics and set the mood of a song.
Participants are welcome to ask questions.
