Songwriters Workshop Intensive

Our Workshop Intensive is designed to teach writers who want to write better songs a new vocabulary for how to listen. To achieve this, we use a unique critiquing system, giving writers definitive insight into what drives a song and what emotion is literally at its heart. By learning this critiquing system and the songcraft/decision-making process of the world's greatest songwriters, workshop participants quickly see new directions in which to take their ideas and apply them to their own songs.

The Workshop  offers a weekly writing assignment designed to "Grow your Ears" and sensitivity.  After 4-5 weeks, you'll understand organically so much more about how the songs you love are constructed, and how to construct your own.

Runs 5 consecutive Tuesday nights from 6:30pm-9pm starting:

January 13th, 20th, 27th, 02/03, & 02/10

Where:
853 Rehearsal Studios

The Advanced Writers Forum

The Advanced Writers Forum is for working music pros and graduates of the Workshop Intensive. The Forum is just that, a forum for playing original songs every week by some of the best writers in town, We give supportive and insightful critiques that strengthen your songs, make them them hook an audience, and through a creative and fun process of rewriting, get em'  ready to stand up to the scrutiny of POP industry gatekeepers and other music buyers.

It's a forum for continued growth, for networking, collaborating with peers, for road testing songs before recording them, and for finding resources from attorneys, producers, collaborators, musicians, studios, and others. The Forum provides visits from industry wigs and stimulating writing assignments.

Runs 5 consecutive Monday nights from 6:30pm-9pm starting:

January 12th, 19th, 26th, 02/02, & 02/09
