3 HUGE SONGWRITING WORKSHOP RETREATS

BEYOND BEGINNERS
SONGWRITING WORKSHOP
KINGLAKE VIC, SEPT 19 -22

This writers retreat and workshop is for people who are able to write songs but are looking for a way to further their skills, learning how to record their songs, more advanced rewriting techniques with the aim of writing towards recording or pitching to established artists. It is the stepping stone between the Beginners and Targeted Workshops. Ideal for those who have already done the Beginners Song Writing Workshop or for those not yet confident enough to do the more advanced Targeted Song Writing Workshop

 

Becoming a more experienced song writer will allow you confidently to pursue opportunities for your songs to be recorded either by yourself or other artists and open the doorway to a world of creativity.

BEGINNERS & BEYOND BEGINNERS SONGWRITING WORKSHOP
KINGLAKE VIC. OCT 24-27

 

This beginners and beyond beginners song writers retreat is perfect for those who have never written a song or who can start but never finish a song or who have written lots of songs but are never happy with them or who just want to improve their song writing skills.  It also incorporates parts of the Beyond Beginners skill teaching for those that are looking to add to their songwriting toolkit (see previous Beyond Beginners description)

 

David and Merelyn together with well known Golden Guitar winning songwriters Jetty Road  and Lachlan Bryan, will deliver workshops and also focus one on one with each participant to help you by demystifying the songwriting process and open the floodgates to the creative you - all this in positive and encouraging environment.

TARGETED SONGWRITING WORKSHOP

This writers workshop is for intermediate and advanced writers who are looking for an intensive weekend to hone their writing skills and prepare songs for upcoming projects and/or get them ready to pitch to artists, publishers etc.
