What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?
It's a songwriting course for beginners/amateurs who have some foundation in music such as having played in a band, you like to sing, hope to write original songs and can play an instrument like piano/guitar.
This course is condensed into eight topics which will answer all, if not most of the questions that every beginner songwriter would have.
Topic 1: Are You Hearing Or Listening?
Learn the difference between hearing and listening to music so you know how to discern the many layers/aspects of music that go into songwriting.
Topic 2: The Songwriter's Toolbox
Learn what a song is - an effective means of communication - and how important it is to have a strong story behind the song so that it brings forth emotion to the listener.
Topic 3: Structural Methods
Ever wondered what makes a song a song? Learn how to craft your songs with tried and test structural methods that have worked for the industry.
Topic 4: Lyrical Methods
Learn more about phrasings and how they play an important role in getting our listeners hooked!
Topic 5: Melodic Methods
Learn about the different types of melodic patterns and understand how they change as the genre changes.
Topic 6: Choosing My Instrument
Understand the different timbres that are available and how you can layer them to bring out different emotions or moods within a song.
Topic 7: Chord Cheat Sheet
Common chord progressions for different types of genres.
Topic 8: Production & Recording
Understand the steps to take in preparing to produce and record a song.
(When I've finished, what lessons can I do next?)

(About the instructor)
JEYME (Jeremy Chin) is a singer-songwriter from Singapore who believes that music is highly cathartic. Before the pandemic, he gigs/busks regularly as a means of reaching out to (and connecting) with the everyday Singaporean. Armed with his percussive-acoustic fingerstyle guitar accompaniment and vocal harmonies, JEYME brings to the table his own curated selection of music in his unique style. He hopes to transport you into his sonically diverse universe of top 40s, R&B and mandopop music and share the joy of performing.
It was through his darkest season that he found great joy and release through performing and songwriting where he could best express his inner-self.
