The Songwriter

Catherine Cook, a sophomore marketing major, loves music and is particularly fond of writing her own songs. Here she puts lyrics to paper and begins to create her newest song.

Cook is a perfectionist. She searches the internet and inspects the chords of other songs to see which chords flow well together.  

For Cook, writing songs is an orderly process. After writing lyrics and finding the perfect chords, she then has to find a strum pattern that enhances the song as a whole. 

She has completed her meticulous songwriting process and now puts all the pieces together to get a feel for her masterpiece. 

Cook shuts her eyes and lets her hands do the work. It's now nothing but her and the music. She wears a slight smile, showing her approval for her work.
