Some of the biggest songs are collaborations between a songwriter and a producer. But it isn’t always easy for these two people to communicate their ideas. In this masterclass songwriter, vocalist, and producer Cândida Borges will take a deeper look at what is required for a songwriter and producer to build a musical relationship and meaningful collaborations. She will also break down the various elements that make up a song, from the original emotion and idea, to melody + topline, lyrics, chords + harmony, to arranging these ideas to form a complete song.
