Brixton 10th September 2019

'Where Words Meet Music’ 

This is a 6 week creative course exploring the relationship between words and music. The course is led and curated by composer and vocalist Ben See. It will also include 4 guest tutors to share their various expertise and open new doors.

Through workshops and structured writing activities we will look at what poems and lyrics can learn from each other. This course is open to all, whether you're a poet looking to explore lyricism, a songwriter keen to extend the range of your lyrics, or a composer interested in setting text. This is an opportunity to explore new ground and play with different approaches in a friendly, supportive atmosphere.
