A Roundabout TheatreLab workshop by Adam Gwon.

Develop your songwriting muscles in this musical theatre writing bootcamp! We’ll cover some basics of the craft, then embark on a collaboration marathon: composers and lyricists will be paired up each week with a prompt to inspire a brand-new song. Through weekly feedback sessions, you’ll hone your skills, broaden your toolkit, and step up your collaboration game. Open to all levels of experience; composers should be comfortable presenting songs live or via recording. Participants should apply as either a composer or a lyricist. 

All sessions to be conducted via Zoom.
