About Cliff Eberhardt: "His songs display the highest level of craftsmanship, his guitar playing is superb and his singing deeply emotional. - The Washington Times
Cliff Eberhardt is a songwriters songwriter with a lyrical sophistication that could easily occupy a chapter in the great American songbook. Combining world-class lyricism and contemporary catch-words and phrases, he is the rare musician who can deliver a heartbreaking lyric with a subtle twist of humor. A consummate performer, Cliff engages the audience with funny but true stories tinged with irony, accompanied by an unparalleled guitar style.
SONG WRITING WORKSHOP with a master: CLIFF EBERHARDT
CLIFF EBERHARDT will conduct a songwriting workshop in conjunction with his appearance at a house concert in Woodland Park (formerly known as West Paterson), NJ on SUNDAY OCTOBER 30th. The 3-hour workshop will be held from 12:30 - 3:30PM.
Song Structure: Intros, Outros, Bridges, and Breaks, will be explored. Cliff will listen to songs written by participants and suggest how changing a phrase or chord can make the melodies more interesting. His goal is to inspire students to take a new look at their approach to their work. I generally let the class tell me what theyre most interested in learning and gear my teaching to satisfy those interests. For more information about Cliff, www.cliffeberhardt.net Participants should bring two or three songs theyd like to work on (but have not yet recorded) and your instrument of choice (if you play one).
Cliff is not only a consummate performer, he is an extraordinary teacher. Just ask those who have attended his sessions over the years at the many song writing camps where he has been an acclaimed instructor. Join CLIFF for this special opportunity to learn from one of the best in the business. (And attend the show later, at 4:30PM.) This 3-hour workshop is only $35 and registration is required (the class size is limited).
