the student surveys

you can discuss songwriting, inspect techniques, position people to write and perform and discuss their work or the works of others. but the work is them doing and them doing is them learning themselves, the weird thing about trying to teach songwriting, or anything about their imagination, is that you can’t. you can teach how to hit a nail with a hammer, how to pull a tarp over rain, how to tie your shoelaces but if it is in the imagination…can you teach someone to paint or to make movies or to be a dancer.. can’t make a horse drink water.
