The Music of the Heart

About this Event

In this day-long workshop, as part of "The Power of Words Festival", Shane Dunphy will explore how songs can say things other media cannot. Love, loss, righteous anger, unfettered joy, love of place, longing for a home long left behind - music and song are often the only real way to express these powerful emotions.  By analysing some classic songs, Shane will show how lyrics can operate on many different levels. He will examine how techniques like varied rhythm, key-changes and chordal sequences can rouse dramatic responses. In a series of exercises, Shane will look at how different songs are structured, and how various musical styles differ in their presentation.  To conclude, Shane will show some different ways of delivering a song can alter its meaning.
