London Songwriters February Meetup

  • Feb 10, 2013 · 1:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Agenda for Sunday 10 February

Shake off the January Blues and join us at The College Arms for our popular format of collaboration, networking and songshare. We will link the collaboration exercise to an aspect of songcraft and continue the mini-presentations we began last year.This meetup is FREE but do please keep RSVPs up to date.

This meetup will be led by Murray and Ros

1:00 - 2:30 Collaboration exercise
2:30 - 3:00 Collaboration playbacks
3:00 - 3:30 Networking break


3:30 - 4:15 Songshare & feedback session 1
4:15 - 4:30 Networking break
4:30 - 5:15 Songshare & feedback session 2

 

Come, collaborate and share your songs!

We begin our meetup with a themed collaboration session. It doesn't matter what your experience or background, this is a fun informal exercise to help you get to know some of the other songwriters and challenge you to come up with a song in 90mins!

After the collaboration playbacks, there will be a chance to network, share and get feedback about your own songs.

Please bring your instruments. A basic keyboard will be available at the venue.

Finally, please come with an open mind and be willing to encourage your fellow songwriters with constructive rather than negative feedback. We are all at different stages of our development as songwriters and this group has been created to support all of us.

A good attendance, buying food and/or drinks will help towards our continued usage of the venue. Please note that only food and drink purchased on the premises can be consumed there.

    It was my first time, but won't be the last. Great fun ... and useful, too, I think. It's refreshing to talk to people about your songs without them looking at you funny ... :)

    Greetings to all.Have just joined and would like to attend the next meetup. Is it possible?

    February 6, 2013

    • Murray W.

      Hi Boikaego it might not be possible this month since there are 17 on the waiting list at the moment. If some people find they are not able to make it on Sunday please take the time change the RSVP to No and the next person in line will take their place. There will of course be a Meetup next month! Kind Regards. Murray

    Any waitlisters wanting to come instead (or as well!) for some songwriting in the countryside might be interested in this free LandSong Walk I'm organising on Sat. the 23rd Feb -- an easy train ride from London and a great way to connect with nature! http://www.landsong.org

      It did, Francesca. The waiting list is automatic so if someone drops out could they please change their RSVP to No and the next person will take their place. Cheers! M

    When I was booking a place for next Sunday, it said there was 28 spaces left, but on the next page it said the spaces had filled up, and I've not been able to book for this month.
