Join Nashville songwriter Tai Shan for a four-week online songwriting course designed to get you writing a new song every week! During each session, Tai will provide you with a prompt to use as inspiration to write a song, poem, or chord progression. The following week you will bring your creation to share with the group (either live or with a basic recording from your phone). Scared you will not know what to write? In every class we will explore the tools you need in your songwriter’s tool chest to work as a professional songwriter. Beginning songwriters are welcome! Some knowledge of an instrument is helpful but not mandatory.
