This workshop invites creatives – from beginners through to the more advanced – interested in engaging with experienced songwriters to improve their techniques. Offering a collective learning experience including examining the basic techniques of word, rhyme and melody, participants will engage with sounds, words, voices and instruments in order to create a group song. Participants are asked to bring writing materials – pen and paper or a device if they prefer – and are also encouraged to bring acoustic instruments. Some basic instruments will be supplied. This session is designed for anyone interested in songwriting, from beginners to those with some experience, aged 18+.
Tickets – $30; $20 for GRLC Members; $10 Concession.
