VIRTUAL, INTERACTIVE
SONGWRITING LESSONS

ABOUT
Lessons

Songwriting cannot be taught in a textbook - 

students must learn it by doing it.

 

With that in mind, Zippy Toons lessons combine developmental & creative exercises that build the foundations of songwriting, beginning with topline writing.

After mastering structural basics, students learn how to

craft unique titles,  write compelling lyrics, compose ear-catching melodies, and ultimately, create chord changes. 

Classes limited to 9 students.  Instrumental, vocal, or music theory training not required.   All classes taught via Zoom.
