A few months ago the Bowden Brompton Community Centre had asked me to consider doing a series of songwriting workshops for them which I agreed wholeheartedly.
Today, I’m proud to present to you the end result of a lot of hard work… The All About Songwriting Monthly Workshop Series.
They will be held at the Bowden Brompton Community Centre located at 19 Green Street, Brompton on the first Monday of each month from 8:40pm until 11:00pm.
The very first workshop in the series kicks off on Monday September 3rd, 2012 and it’s going to be a Songwriting and Music Business MasterClass featuring well known SA songwriter, producer and music industry identity Dino Jag.
What a way to start off proceedings.
These workshops, are an opportunity for songwriters of any skill level to learn about their chosen craft while at the same time, network with other like minded songwriters in an informal, relaxed and creative learning environment.
Each monthly workshop has three parts to the evening:
1. Workshop/Discussion Topic
This is the first section of the night where the main workshop/discussion topic is presented to the participants. From time to time, a special guest will be available to present a songwriting masterclass or, to help along with the evening adding value wherever they can.
These workshop/discussion topics are designed to allow all of the participants to gain valuable knowledge, to space to ask questions and to learn from the other members in an informal, relaxed and creative learning environment
2. Q&A Session
This is the second section of the evening where participants can ask any songwriting or music business related question to the facilitator and/or the special guest.
This is a fantastic opportunity for the group to start brainstorming and generating ideas for themselves and each other. This section of the evening is where the real networking begins.
3. Songwriters Circle
The final section of the evening is where the participants can either showcase their finished songs for constructive feedback or, present their works in progress for some collaborative input by the group.
This is an opportunity for songwriters to use the collective mind of the workshop to help them fully explore the potential of their songs or, to be given direction on how to finish their works in progress.
There will also be handouts for participants to take home as well as ongoing online support in between the workshops through the All About Songwriting forum.
Entry to each of these workshops have an entry fee of $25 for waged persons and $15 for concession card holders and SCALA members which covers the hire of the space plus the cost of the food and beverages provided for all participants on the night.
