It’s Only a Paper Moon: a Songwriting Workshop for Everyone
With equal measure paid to lyrics and music, songwriters will leave with the analytical tools to better refine and focus their own writing, while the non-writing song lover will leave with a greater appreciation for the magic that makes songs work. Though we will occasionally get a little technical, no songwriting experience or musical training is required. Our workshop will culminate in the collaborative re-writing of a pre-existing pop song.
