Event description
Do you write songs for worship or performance? Spark your creativity, hone your lyrics & inspire your music on our Songwriting Course.

About this event

Do you love writing songs for local church, or for performance contexts? Feel called to craft music and lyrics that expresses hearts and forms faith? Want to grow alongside fellow creatives and experienced writers?

The LST Songwriting Intensive is all this packed into two Friday-Saturday blocks. The course combines teaching, inspiration, and practical ideas for developing your songs. Songs of all styles are encouraged and nurtured. The module also includes informal concerts to share songs and space to constructively critique one another’s material.

This course will be delivered in-person at LST over two intensive weekends on 12th-13th November 2021 and 11th-12th February 2022. Alternatively, this course will run over Zoom if COVID restrictions increase.

Topics Include

  • Sparking Ideas
  • Developing and Nurturing
  • Writing to a Brief
  • Melody Writing
  • Using Rhyme
  • Sharing Your Song

In registering to attend the course we ask you to accept the following terms and conditions:
