Songwriting from the Heart Progressing on the Journey

Nov 03 - 08, 2019 Begins in 5 months
with John Smith with Julie Baker Chouteau

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 your 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.
