Very often composers and producers feel overwhelmed in writing music. The Master Class, curated by Charles Burchell, will focus on the essential elements of songwriting and on how to stimulate the birth of musical ideas to compose the basis of a song in just 10 minutes.
We will also discuss how different ideas can be connected to each other to create an entire song. Charles Burchell will also discuss some basic characteristics of Ableton live, since the ideas and musical proposals of the workshop participants themselves will be recorded.
