In creating my patterns I hadn't been paying attention to the type of rhyme I was using ie perfect, vowel sound, end sound etc (not sure of tech wording). This class highlighted and raised awareness around this, where previous classes it just hadn't clicked in my head and so now I totally understand the confusion around my V2 rhyming.

You guys have given me a major boost to my songwriting confidence and singing! I am a beginner in both areas and my submissions are 99% a capella as I don't play an instrument confidently. Being part of SongU has really encouraged me to just sing and be ok with others hearing me, though it can be intimidating when you are in a class with Jeff/Cruz. Just this alone has been amazingly helpful in my writing.I am really happy that you found something to poke at - the bridge wasn't sitting comfortably with me and I appreciate your direction for that section.Thank you again!CheersT" -- Tamika C., Australia (8/20/2020)

The event was interesting and more than a bit educational to hear songs and lyrics from people in different states and even one live from Scotland. Hearing songs from other songwriters as well as being able to watch them perform them live was a very enriching experience.
