MasterClass: SongWriting/ChantMaking (Offline/Audit Format)
Virtual Seven-Week Course
Develop your songwriting and chantmaking skills with a celebrated innovator and recording artist in the field of universal chant.
For fifty years, across the contemporary spiritual singing landscape of America, Europe and Australia, Stillwater's songs and chants have been sung and recorded in countless gatherings. An award-winning songwriter with a focus on English chant- repeated choruses with infectious melody and rhythmic motifs- he discovers new material born from the endless harvest of intuitive songmaking.
Participants will have opportunity to refine their original songs by musical mentoring with Michael in the supportive atmosphere of an international gathering of aspiring and performing songwriters.
Playing an accompaniment instrument (guitar, ukulele, keyboard, harmonium, etc) is helpful but not required. Reading music notation is helpful but not required.
