What makes a song work? What’s the difference between a song with a chorus and verses, and a song with verses and a bridge? How do songs move stories forward? If I’m an actor, does any of this matter to me?

Of course it does.

Song form is at the bottom of everything we do with songs, whether we write them, or perform them — or both.  Understanding the structure of a song can help us shape, strengthen and deepen a performance of a song.

Come take a Master Class workshop with Steven Lutvak, composer and co-lyricist of 2014 Tony Winner for Best Musical, A GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE TO LOVE AND MURDER. Steven will focus on song form, and how it affects the choices we make as performers, as songwriters, as communicators and story tellers.

Actors should bring in three songs, from which Steven will choose one. Songwriters are asked to bring in at least two of their own songs. Everyone will need to bring in sheet music.  And because this is a songwriting workshop, and not an audition class, be expected to sing an entire song!

Steven Lutvak - GEGSTEVEN LUTVAK is an award-winning composer and lyricist who has worked as a vocal coach to many Oscar and Tony winning actors on Broadway and on film for over 30 years. He has also taught songwriting, and is currently on faculty at NYU, having previously taught at Yale, and Columbia.
