Course Description: “Oh sing to the LORD a new song; sing to the LORD, all the earth!” (Ps. 96:1) Songs have always overflowed from God’s people. In this class we will examine the parts of a song and the process of crafting songs that facilitate worship. Classroom activities will include discussions, collaborative songwriting exercises, and sharing original songs. Homework will include writing original songs based off songwriting prompts.
Many decades ago Darrell was a rock star in Taiwan with Sony-BMG. His latest music project was a recording of original worship songs with his church worship band: www.createworship.org
