Songwriting from the Heart—Progressing on the Journey

Nov 05 - 10, 2017 Begins in 6 months
with Johnsmith

Come take your seat among other songwriters as we work to refine our songwriting tools. We will go beyond the basic nuts and bolts of the craft, working to take our skills to the next level. Get ready to develop the ability to translate our own life stories into well-crafted, heartfelt songs. Through writing exercises, song assignments, performances, co-writing, and demonstrations, the inner muse will be coaxed and cultivated. In a safe, supportive, fun workshop climate, we’ll share and receive constructive feedback on our works in progress.
