Songwriting! Channel your inner song.

Looking to write songs? At Allegro, we can take the melodies in your head, and help you sharpen your abilities to create music! If you are a singer wanting to learn the power of chords, create a melody, or lyric writing, our teachers are here to guide and foster our singing students' goals in songwriting.

We welcome children, adults, and seniors of any skill level to register for our songwriting lessons. 

Our voice students, taking singing lessons will often choose our songwriting course for overall musical well-roundedness.

Our songwriting lessons give singers not only the skills they need to create their own music but to accompany themselves! Many of our singer-songwriters will take piano, guitar, or ukulele lessons with songwriting lessons for a boost in accompaniment knowledge and development in skills that songwriters will take with them always. See what instruments we teach.

What will you learn?

  • lyric writing - Find your inner poet, craft lyrics, and put them to the song!

  • creating and defining a melody

  • song structure and arranging

  • harmony and voicing

  • writing parts for accompanying instruments

Songwriting is a way to convey your thoughts and feelings through song. It allows you to break down thoughts into abstract and imaginative ways, as writing is a therapeutic form of self-expression.

Over the last year, we have expanded our online lessons, and this has been met with an overwhelmingly positive response from students. Allegro is proud to offer songwriting lessons both in-person and online. We believe in the importance of offering our students options and making them feel as comfortable as possible, so they can learn.
