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.
