What You'll Get

Lyrics are the foundation of musical theater storytelling and, for many playwrights, the final frontier. This 8-week class will teach you to apply your existing storytelling impulses to a lyric format.

This class might be for you if you are:

  • An early-career lyricist looking for a comprehensive introduction to this exciting and collaborative form.
  • A playwright looking to delve into the world of musicals.
  • A musical theater artist who wants to be a better collaborator.

In this class you will:
  • Learn to write with music, a musical collaborator, and a librettist in mind.
  • Cover song structure, scansion, and rhyme, and apply these to lyric writing exercises and assignments.
  • Examine the classic musical theater song forms and examples of great lyrics, defining what makes them so successful.

By the end of this class you will:
  • Have a solid foundation of lyrical storytelling.
  • Be able to add more songs to your lyric writing repertoire, adding to those you have already written in class.
