musical theatre song lab

The Musical Theatre Song Lab provides an opportunity to create iconic musical theatre songs and receive critical feedback – even if you don’t have a collaborator. If you are a lyricist or a composer without a collaborator, you can get some practice with these song types by using our library of lyrics and music. The course contains six units: The Ballad, The Comedy Song, The Conflict Duet, The Ensemble, The Musical Scene, and the Disappointment Song. Each unit includes a definition of the type of song; a play to read; and an assignment to write a song based on the play. Your completed songs will be critiqued by WMT Staff. (You may also take the lab as a composer/lyricist, or as a team of composer and lyricist.)

PRICE: $395

($595 for composer/lyricist combination)
