Bailen Brothers

Bailen BrothersSUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 2 PM

As Dorothy Parker once said, “I hate writing, I love having written.” Song writing can feel the same way, but it can also be one of the most rewarding forms of self-expression. This workshop, led by twin brothers David and Daniel Bailen with pianist Pierre Piscitelli, explores the construction of a melody and how it relates to song structure. Drawing from classic standards from the American songbook up to modern popular music, The Bailen Brothers string a thread through common trends and provide tools one can use to build a melody and create hooks. In this workshop you will hear the deconstruction of both original and classic compositions as they pertain to melody and song structure, and you will even have the opportunity to write a song of your own with the group.  Open to all!
