Description

We are no longer taking online registrations for this workshop.

This workshop for beginning and advanced songwriters focuses on songwriting as a tool for self-discovery. While Jimmie Dale Gilmore creates an atmosphere of interaction and collaboration, the emphasis is on providing perspectives and motivation for ongoing individual creativity.

The group explores what it is that makes songs such an essential and potent part of human communication, in an environment where everyone can flourish. A small amount of time is given to discussion of the business aspect of songwriting.

More Information

Bring a guitar or small keyboard if you have one.  If you would like to receive feedback and evaluation, bring 30 printed copies (or a recording) of a song you have written.
