Serving the Song – Ian Tamblyn Songwriting Workshop Sat. April 26th

serving the song

“Active participation in songwriting and creative writing exercises will be part of the session. No “hits” are promised but you might get a song or two out of the experience. As well the course will take a look at some of the contemporary masters of songwriting and how their inspiration and techniques work. Songs written or brought to the course by participants will be constructively critiqued if so inclined. The course promises to be intense, stimulating and demanding.”
