LIMITED TO 20 • REGISTRATION IS OPEN—ONLY A FEW SPOTS LEFT!

One of the oldest phrases in any language must be ‘tell me a story.’ Songwriting is storytelling, and telling your story in a compelling way is all about detail. It’s about what you say, and what you don’t say. It’s about the truth, not necessarily the facts. In this workshop, we’ll explore the process of songwriting—the art and the craft and the delicate balance between the two.
