Songhall Writers Workshop “A” Fall 2010


8 Sessions / 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM / Tuesdays
Classes meet on September 7, 14, 21, 28 & October 5, 12, 19, 26

Workshop Goal: To strengthen the songwriting skill set and bring the emerging writer closer to the music industry through workshop sessions with hit songwriters and industry professionals in publishing, music licensing and A&R.

Each participant will have been selected for this workshop on the basis of two songs submitted. These songs will be played and evaluated by the workshop in preparation for our guests who will listen and review. Along the way all will gain the insights of the songwriters and industry professionals. There will be a Q&A period with each guest. Participants will be expected to begin working on a new song that will be shared with the workshop in its development to be completed and performed during our 8th session. These songs may be co-written and workshop participants collaborating together is encouraged. Industry Guests will be announced in advance of the first session.

Peter Bliss - SongHall Activities Coordinator / Songwriter (Barbra Streisand, NYSNC, Jennifer Love Hewitt) will guide the workshop.

PRE-REGISTRATION: Please attach and email two (2) of your original song mp3s with accompanying lyric sheets to Peter Bliss at: . Songs may have been co-written. They will be reviewed by the SongHall and you will be contacted regarding your acceptance into this workshop. The level of production is not as important a factor as the song itself though the recording quality should be clear with a vocal and lyric that is well presented. These songs will be played in the workshop for our guests.
