Question from anonymous
Hi, I'm wondering if this is a good class to take if you have very little to no music experience. I have very little guitar ability and am very shy when it comes to my voice, so I'm wondering if this class will be possible with those limitations or not. Thank you!
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
The Mystery of Songwriting with Christopher North is a workshopping class for singer-songwriters. There is no singing requirement for the class but is welcomed if the students are comfortable enough. In this group-setting class, students will work on writing songs from start to finish. No actual preparation or material is needed prior to the start of the class; just songwriting interest, some music experience, and preferably some creative experience (poetry, music improv, etc). Hope this helps!

Question from Rebecca G.
Hi there, I am curious how much material I am to have prepared before the start of the class? DO I need to have songs prepared and if not, what should I have? I'd like to enroll. Thanks
Answer from 92Y School of M.
No actual preparation or materials needed prior to start of class. Just songwriting interest, some music experience, preferably some creative experience (words, poetry, music inc improv, laptop / iPhone). We look forward to having you join the class!
