If you want to push yourself as a songwriter, you’ll need to know different methods and devices to unlock your creativity. That’s why learning in small groups is important, where you are given the space and time to apply these methods and hone your own technique and approach, in order to reach your full potential.
Songwriters at WaterBear will get to explore many different approaches to the various aspects of songwriting and composition. Creative spark, lyric writing, music theory, structure and arrangement, rhythm, melody and harmony, together with pre- and post-production techniques all form part of what you’ll be learning. And the WaterBear campus buildings have been designed in such a way to unlock each person’s creativity and musical potential. Make sure you check out our roster of tutors and mentors too, all professionals with incredible CVs who are there to help you achieve your goals.
If you write on a particular instrument and can bring that with you, that’s great. Inspiration can happen at any time and you’ll want to be able to seize the moment. Being able to record to a reasonable standard at home is also particularly useful. You’ll also have access to musical instruments and the college, and free rehearsal and recording time in professional recording studios too.
