Songwriters Sought for Fall Semester Classes

Published on: August 16, 2012

Register now for Lone Star College-CyFair’s Popular Songwriting class and let the songs, or perhaps a future Grammy Award winner, inside you emerge. 

Sign up for this limited enrollment credit class, MUSI 1386, to learn the basics of popular song writing, including lyric writing, form, melody and harmony, with an experienced composer-lyricist on the LSC-CyFair Music Department faculty.

Assistant Professor of Music Dr. Aaron Alon will teach students about traditional and contemporary styles of popular songwriting. Students will also have the opportunity to write new songs in styles of their own choosing. The class ends with a final concert of student-written songs in the college’s Main Stage Theatre.

Pre-requisites for this class include completion of ENGL 0305 and ENGL 0307 with at least a ‘C’ or ENGL 1301 with at least a ‘D’.

This songwriting class has two open sections that meet in Room 108 in the Center for the Arts Building. Section 5001 meets 1:30 p.m. – 2:50 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays and section 5002 meets 1 p.m.  – 2:20 p.m.  Tuesdays and Thursdays.

For class information, email Aaron.Alon@LoneStar.edu or call 281.290.3551. To register for the fall semester, which starts Aug. 27, go to LoneStar.edu/registration.
