From page A6 | January 29, 2012 |

The city of Davis presents a class in songwriting from 7 to 8 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays, from Jan. 31 to March 1, at the Veterans’ Memorial Center, 203 E. 14th St.

Learn about the craft of writing a song, and develop your skills and your personal style. The course will discuss notable songwriting examples in several genres, including blues, jazz, rock, Motown, country, new wave, folk and pop music, and analyze their chord structures, lyrical and metrical schemes, form and subject matter.

Students will write two original songs, ideally for performance at the course’s end.

No previous musical experience (including the ability to read music) is necessary. Instructor Steve Geller received a Ph.D. from UC Davis in 2003 in music theory and composition, and has been giving musical instruction, including in theory, musicology, voice and piano, for 17 years.

The cost is $80. Register at the city of Davis Community Services Department, 600 A St., Suite C, or online at http://www.cityofdavis.org. For information, call the Community Services Department at (530) 757-5626.
