In this short course we will learn from some of the most famous songs in American popular music. We'll listen to examples of great songwriting, I'll convey what I find attractive about these songs, and we'll explore one specific songwriting detail per piece. The main goal is to help listeners grow their appreciation for music. An added benefit for songwriters is that you will walk away with tools that you can apply immediately to our own songs.
