Rhyme Scheme, vocal delivery, brain storming, emotional content, such loaded topics that I never thought that I’d learn about when I took this course that I know have a slight grasp on.
My biggest desire I wanted from this course was to gain something different then my other writing courses, something beyond conventional writing tips and I can safely say at this point that I’ve gained it.
I’ll admit that I could of been a wayyy – emphasis on the way – better student in general, but the way that this class impacted me was damn near magical honestly.
When I write music, I feel like I have a voice.
Not saying that I don’t have a voice now but if you hear me in real life – unfortunately if you are currently reading this blog post you’ve probably never heard the real me talk as well – its scripted and polished for me to get what I want and to avoid conflict. But when I write music and can grab conflict from the horns and sometimes even actively seek it.
I hope I write music after this course. I’d like to say that this class has established music writing as a solid avenue for me to get my feelings out but honestly I’m worried that this oasis of freedom could be lost as I fall back into the rutt of things next semester, but I will say this as someone still currently in the moment of enjoying making music –
damn has it been fun.
