This audition-only, peer-driven song feedback setting last ran in the FALL 2017 with Dillon O'Brian (Bonnie Raitt, Shakira, Vince Gill, Amy Grant, Jann Arden, Sons of Anarchy, etc.) conducting this audition-only song feedback room.
Stay tuned for an announcement about the WINTER 2019 Workshop.
The Songwriter's Workshop affords that rare opportunity of personal and intellectual enrichment, concrete feedback, and genuine community. This ongoing class is designed to inspire, facilitate, and enhance the creation, evaluation, and revision of quality songs.

This gathering is by audition-only to assemble a room capable of being a benefit to and benefitting from one another.

The Songwriter's Workshop affords that rare opportunity of personal and intellectual enrichment, concrete feedback, and genuine community. This ongoing class is designed to inspire, facilitate, and enhance the creation, evaluation, and revision of quality songs. You will not only be pushed to write your best work, you will expand your peer network of potential collaborators and your professional network of contacts. And by learning to meaningfully critique your peers' work, you will fortify your skills as an editor and creator of your own work.
The bulk of class is dedicated to workshopping peer songs. But part of each class allows for a professional conversation about creative or industry challenges, successes, and strategies, often drawing upon the expertise of the guest instructor. Assignments are made weekly for creating and revising. Each week you can try your hand at the exercises or simply continue to work on the songs you'd like workshopped. Regardless, this portion of class will help generate new ideas and inspire you to take different approaches to your writing.
