For the first time, CVI offers single seminars on “Songwriting”. This course is for singers who are currently enrolled at CVI or have completed a CVI course. A “Songwriting’ Seminar consist primarily of a combination of theoretical and practical sessions, offering each participant time to study songwriting in more depth. Expressing yourself through words and music. Tips on how to work with writing own original material; lyric writing, combine melodies, harmonies and rhythm, song structure and form, working alone to co-writing etc.

Musical and artistic approach to singing

Working on songwriting, expression and performance is a central part of the course. During classes, the singer will have the opportunity to work with personal expression, in relation to his or her own songs.  We also have arranged during the weekend a songwriter concert with a pianist available as well as open mic gathering Friday evening.
