Teaching Songwriting at Wesleyan, Spring 2014

Let’s do this: In addition to continuing on at NYU’s Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music, I will be teaching songwriting at Wesleyan University for the Spring semester of 2014. The student applications have blown my mind, and I can’t wait to get to work.

Special Thanks: Benny Blanco

Special Thanks: Benny Blanco

“The rule is: Make Noise.” Special thanks to my guest speaker, Benny Blanco, who took time out between writing sessions to talk to the students about his own trajectory, how he keeps his work fresh, and how he balances life in the process. Funny, irreverent and inspiring, he was a high point of the semester so far. Break out the violet cardigan sweaters: I am teaching songwriting at NYU’s Clive Davis School of the Recording Arts this fall. We’ve been focusing on the establishment of a personal songwriting voice, and oh, we’ve been writing. And writing.

I had a great time being part of The Acoustic Guitar Project, in which participants are given a guitar, a mic, and a week to write a song. This is what happened.
