What makes a song GOOD?

And what makes a good song GREAT?

Award-winning Songwriter Steven Lutvak, composer & co-lyricist of the Tony Award-winning Best Musical A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE AND MURDER, teaches a class in Songwriting.

We will look at great songs from the American Songbook, with an eye towards structure and form, and explore what details make a song "work" -- or not.

Plus, there will be writing assignments every week, where we can put what we've learned looking at the songs from the Great American Songbook into practice.
