MUSIC FOR LYRICISTS
ANMT's sixth annual MUSICAL THEATRE BOOT CAMP presents: MUSIC FOR LYRICISTS
Instructor: Bill Berry
Saturday/Sunday afternoon, 2pm to 6pm
August 6 & 7
Course Fee: $95 (Early Bird/ANMT Member Fee: $50)
Have you ever felt a little bowled over when your collaborator starts throwing around terms like 'coda', 'dotted-eighth' and 'arpeggio'? Don't you want to just tell them to go 'Fugue' themselves? I KNOW right? It's like they're speaking a whole different language. (Italian maybe?) Well don't be dismayed! ANMT to the rescue again with a cool little course called Music For Lyricists. Learn the basics of music theory and how to read a lead sheet. Find why some words fit smoothly into a musical phrase while others do not. Never again say to your analyst, 'My composer doesn't understand me'. Communication is the key!
Taught by songwriter/funnyman Bill Berry, Music For Lyricists will offer you the basics of what those dots and lines are all about as well as to assist you to write lyrics to melodies with a whole new perspective.
Los Angeles songwriter Bill Berry co-wrote the musical soundtrack for ABC television's acclaimed 2006 comedy series SONS & DAUGHTERS. His songs have been featured in films, theater and television, as well as numerous commercials and artist's recordings and many of his lyrics are included in the popular book on lyric writing BECOMING REMARKABLE by Harriet Schock.
