March 30th: Saturday morning at 10 Am we will begin learning how to write a song. The workshop will be all day and go to 18:30.

TO BRING:

1. Your instrument if you have one.
2. Notepad and pen. 
3. Something to record yourself with- like a phone or tape recorder. 
4. One song that represents your singer-songwriter preference. And if you can play it already- even better! 
5. Lunch- there are places to eat in the area, however, you are welcome to bring your lunch and eat here! 

QUESTIONS: 

Do I need to know how to play an instrument? 

No! If you don't play an instrument, that's ok. If you only know how to play a few chords on the guitar, cool! If you are a professional guitar player who now wants to write lyrics and melody... fantastic. 

What if at the end of this course I want more lessons and input? 

Liz offers personal one on one songwriting lessons as well as more group workshops throughout the year. We got you covered!
