Workshop Goal: This one-day workshop takes a strategic approach to building your songwriting business. It will focus on understanding your market and developing your brand, turning your songs into hits, and selling those hits to the people that need them. The focus will be on interaction as the workshop listens to songs brought into the group for review. Songs by workshop attendees will be reviewed and all are encouraged to either bring their song recordings on an iPod or a CD.  ERIC BEALL, author of the book "Making Music Make Money (An Insider's Guide To Becoming Your Own Music Publisher)" and "The Billboard Guide To Writing and Producing Songs That Sell" will lead the workshop.
The next in our series of New Writers Showcases has just been scheduled for April. Stay tuned to the songhall.org website for the latest details coming soon. If you’d like to be considered for participation in this showcase, or one that is upcoming, join now, and submit up to four songs!
