In this songwriting event, you will be assigned to a group of 2-4 (mostly groups of 3). Balanced groups will be designed by the hosts based on your answers to the list of questions below (you will be asked these questions when you RSVP).
Structure of event: 1) Gather and find out your group assignment. 2) Groups split into separate rooms and will have 90 minutes to work together. 3) All groups come back together and have 5-10 minutes to share their progress.
Groups will then be highly encouraged present a final song at the SIS Monthly Meeting on August 19 at 7:00 pm. This will probably mean that the groups will arrange some practice times between this event and the Aug. 19 meeting. If you can not make the August 19 meeting and you are not willing to practice outside of this event, please DO NOT RSVP.
Questions you will be asked when you RSVP:
1. Are you stronger at writing words or music (or equal in both)?
2. What instruments do you play? Please list all and mark which one(s) are primary. (Note: For this event, it is fine if you don't play an instrument.)
3. Would you be comfortable being the lead singer for the group?
4. How much songwriting experience do you have?
Things to bring to the event: 1) Your instrument(s) 2) Any pieces of lyric/music ideas that you are willing to share with the group, but not completed songs. 3) An open, positive, and inclusive attitude.
The songs written in the group will have equal authorship of everyone in the group.
Notes: There is a piano available in the living room. Please communicate with hosts, if you are interested in using it.
There is no charge for this event.
Please message hosts if you have any questions.
