Songwriting & Performance

Masterclass Week

Songwriting & performance

with Paul de Munnik

11 August 2023 - 18 August 2023

Dutch or English

Maestro Paul de Munnik

Status It was an incredible week!

Paul de Munnik will give a masterclass in songwriting and performing. After this week the participants will return home with a brand new song and a treasure chest full of tips & tricks to perform it as gloriously as possible. The partly individual character of the master class makes it suitable for all levels.

Initially, the emphasis will be on writing the song. Or the song. The text can be in Dutch or English. What keeps you busy? What do you want to talk about? What do you want to get off your chest?

Close to yourself

You choose a subject that is close to your heart and turn it into a song that is very personal, but translated to a form in which your audience can recognize itself.

Text and music can go hand in hand, but can also be developed separately. Do you only have lyrics? No problem, you can find the melody and chords together.

In the second half of the week the focus will be on performing the song. What do you need to get it across, in your unique way?

Averse to larmoyant drama, but nurtured and felt from within.
