Workshop Goal: To strengthen the songwriting skill set and bring the emerging writer closer to the music industry through workshop sessions with hit songwriters and industry professionals in publishing, music licensing and A&R.
Each participant will have been selected for this workshop on the basis of two songs submitted. These songs will be played and evaluated by the workshop in preparation for our guests who will listen and review.  Along the way, participants will gain the insights of the songwriters and industry professionals. There will be a Q&A period with each guest.
Participants will be expected to begin working on a new song that will be shared with the workshop in its development, to be completed and performed during our 8th session. These songs may be co-written, and workshop participants collaborating together is encouraged.
