Cumberland University will offer a class entitled “Night School for Songwriters” this spring, an intense but entertaining six-week course on the craft and business of songwriting.
Michael Kosser, director of the Cumberland University Songwriters Institute, will instruct the two-hour class that will meet once a week starting in January.
Kosser is a veteran of 39 years on Nashville’s Music Row where his songs were recorded by George Jones, Conway Twitty, Barbara Mandrell, Charlie Rich, Tammy Wynette, the Kendalls, Ray Price, Josh Gracin, Blake Shelton and many more. He has also written 19 published books, many of them about the music industry.
Kosser will address topics about songwriting, how to get started in the business, how to write a song and how those in the business got started.
The course will take place from 7-9 p.m. Tuesdays beginning Jan. 12 at the recording studio classroom in the basement of the Mitchell Student Center on the Cumberland University campus. Cost is $360 per person, due on or before Jan. 8. For further information, contact Kosser at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 547-1297.
