MCS 361 - Essentials of Songwriting

(3) Artists will receive classroom instruction, participate in directed study with staff and work in collaboration with other students to develop their use of form, melody, harmony, rhythm and lyric. Enrollment is limited to students admitted to the semester-long Contemporary Music Center program in Martha’s Vineyard.

Notes: In cooperation with the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities, courses under the MCS prefix are earned through a semester-long program of study at the Contemporary Music Center CMC on Martha’s Vineyard. This interdisciplinary off-campus study program provides a community for young musicians and aspiring music executives to plumb the depths of their creative souls and test the waters of a career in popular music. Designed as an artists’ community, the program seeks to develop artists and music executives with a Christ-centered vision for music content, production and delivery. The mission of the CMC is to prepare students academically and creatively for potential careers in the music industry.
