Description

Speed Songwriting: $95

With four amazing mentors from inspiration and collaboration to final presentation.

In this intense workshop songwriters will be divided into groups that contain at lease one lyricist, vocalist and instrumentalist. You will have 3 hours to write a song and then perform it for the group.

This will be done with the help of four hit songwriters who know how to write on a deadline. The time will be broken down into sections with professional tips and coaching all along the way.

The result is you will end up with a new song, new collaborators, new connections, and hopefully new knowledge that will affect the way you write songs forever.

They all have tremendous credits but each one is still active and on the front lines of the current music business. Find out how the business really works and raise the level of your chances for success.
