What makes a song work? What’s the difference between a song with a chorus and verses, and a song with verses and a bridge? How do songs move stories forward? If I’m an actor, does any of this matter?
Song form is at the bottom of everything to do with songs, whether you write them, perform them, or both. Understanding the structure of a song can help you shape, strengthen, and deepen a performance of a song.
Come take a Master Class workshop with Steven Lutvak, composer and co-lyricist of 2014 Tony Winner for Best Musical, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder. Steven will focus on song form, and how it affects the choices you make as a performer, as a songwriter, as a communicator, and story teller.
