Attendance will be limited to only 20 so if you’re interested you will want to grab a spot!
Each participant, upon signing up, may email an mp3 with a lyric for one song to: firstname.lastname@example.org in advance.
Since there are only 20 slots, purchased tickets are transferable but not refundable. Upon arrival we’ll dig right in and everyone’s name will be drawn from the fishbowl to present their song for feedback. They can be performed or played on CD or from a cell phone but providing lyrics is mandatory in order to get the best critique!
Although we will most likely get through them all in the time we have, in the event that there is anyone who did not get a critique, Beth will send one back by email within two weeks of the class.
These sessions have been incredibly popular as students really learn a lot about the craft of writing even through other’s songs. Many songwriting teachers hate to do critiques but I love it…and I’m very gentle!
