Peter Case brings his unique and popular songwriting class back to Gtyphon on March 31, offering secrets of the craft that will have you immediately writing more powerful and interesting songs. The class will be a fun, comfortable, and at times humorous environment, but the content is serious and will enable you to surprise yourself with a new song composed as a class assignment. You can receive feedback by email after the class for your assignment song. Performance of songs is completely voluntary, not required, but due to time considerations, not everyone will be able to perform. Peter’s workshop will focus equally on lyrics and music, and on the art of coming up with fresh melodic and lyrical ideas. Topics will include “thinking like a genius” and “putting what you love directly into your songs.
Peter Case is a Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter and producer, a mighty fine guitarist and a well-reviewed published author and yet, he’s most at home on the stage. For 25 years, Peter, his guitar and his songs have mesmerized audiences from coast to coast, whether holding down a festival crowd, warming up the place for luminaries like Jackson Browne and John Prine or headlining his own nightclub shows— of which he can claimed to have logged thousands.
“But Case’s considerable background in punk and electric pop injects his songs with a uniquely incisive quality…even his more laid back ballads connect with a power and passion most others in his field don’t—or can’t– invoke. “ —American Songwriter
“Nearly three decades into his solo career, Peter Case remains one of our best and most compelling singer/songwriters” —All Music Guide
