Our Lyric Coaches…
Stephen Cole is a master lyric-writing teacher. He offers tools and inspirational techniques to help you maximize the craft of lyric writing for all genres, including musical theatre, pop, rock, R&B, country and comedy. The benefit of studying with an experienced lyric writer who has done special material, comedy and every style of musical theatre song, and one who is also a librettist, is to be exposed to 100 years or more of history and what works, what lands, what art and craft should be. “My passion will rub off and you will be the best lyric writer that you can be.”
Examine the anatomy of a song — how it is constructed and how the lyric works with the music to create more than the sum of its parts. Study the difference between theatre-writing and pop-writing — how a song is created to express a character’s emotions, thoughts, wants, needs, joys, woes etc. Learn craft of lyrics — how, why and when to use rhyme, near rhyme, assonance, metaphor etc. How the words sit and fit with the music. Comedy Songs — What is funny? How do you land a joke in a lyric? How does the music add or subtract? Special Material — How to tailor songs for special occasions. How to tailor songs for stars.
