The Ultimate Song Structure Showdown

This free workshop is perfect for music students, aspiring performers or lovers of music!

Do you ever notice the structure of a song while you’re listening to it? You should! Paying attention to the structure can crack open a song for you, and you’ll come to love some of the hidden mechanisms of what makes a song or an artist stand out from the rest. It can also just as easily break them.

This workshop is a joyful analytical look at the most common and most surprising song structures in music history. Come and learn why they work so well, steal some ideas for yourself, and you’ll never listen to these songs the same way again!

Featuring the music of Justin Bieber, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, and more.

Where: The Capital’s Bendigo Bank Theatre

When: Tuesday June 22 at 5pm 

Duration: 2 hours

This workshop is in conjunction with the following show:

Love Song Dedications (without Richard Mercer) is derived from the late night radio show with Richard Mercer who retired after 17 years of being on air.

Now Bonnie Leigh-Dodds and Tom Hogan attempt to fill the void that ‘The Love God’ left behind.

Blurb about the show:

Join Bonnie and Tom on their quest to find the perfect love song. After listening to literally thousands of dedications this hilarious duo are neck deep in the challenge. They seriously need your help. It’s going to take all night! Actually, only about 70 minutes. You’ll laugh, you might cry. And your heart will soar (secretly) at all those half-forgotten songs you’re ashamed to know the lyrics to.

Coming to The Capital on June 23. Tickets here
