The Songsalive! Workshops take place at select Songsalive! Chapter cities around the world. (and sometimes online).
Open to all songwriters, composers, musicians, singers and music lovers, this is your chance to develop your songwriting in a supportive and intimate environment, meet invaluable music industry experts, network with fellow members, and be part of your local songwriters community.
Come to regular Songsalive! song critique workshops and develop collaborations, meet industry guests, showcase and gain feedback for your songs and music in a professional and supportive environment. The Songsalive! workshops are open to all songwriters and music composers of all levels and music genres (preference is given to Pro members for critique, and we encourage everyone to join Songsalive! to maximize your opportunities with us).
The first half is solely dedicated to an in-the-round critique workshop where writers present one song each – either on tape, CD (sometimes iPod) or live – with feedback and critique given by a guest speaker or the Songsalive! moderator (who in-turn allows some comments from attendees also).
The second half is dedicated to an Music Industry educational and informative discussion/talk, often with a guest speaker, and plenty of time to talk and network. Our guest speakers represent all facets of the industry from A&R, publishers, successful producers, CD production and distribution execs and, of course, writers and composer who share their ideas, tips & techniques on all aspects of the songwriting craft.
Some topics include song structure, song production, lyric writing, finding inspiration, songs and the media, promoting your music online, how to tour, how to get songs in film and television, performing at your best.
Pro members can attend workshops for free (* $10 for non-members to come audit).
