The 2015 Songwriting Challenge

Mondays: January 12, February 9, March 9, April 13, May 11, June 8
Final performance date tba
6:45-8:45pm @ SoundSpace! Music Studio 2111 Mission St. Suite 303

What is it?

A program for people who have either always wanted to write songs or are already songwriters but need a structure to make it happen!


We all have a tendency to wait to get around to some of the things that are important to us.  Culturally we have made a terrible habit around music of being super judgmental about what is good and bad and a perception of musical talent that stops us from being able to let go and make music for the joy and love for it.

How does this happen?

This is a 6 month program with a goal -- to write and finish a song and perform it within a 6 month time period. You will be led through every step to make this possible. We will have group meetings once a month on the second Monday evening of each month January - June 2015 from 6:45pm to 8:45 pm. We will have weekly group check-ins, assignments and points of inspiration as well as clear, incremental goals, steps and craft/skill building.

Are you talking to me?

If you have always wanted to write your own songs or if your songwriting has needed more structure, this is for you.  Each person will be required to sign a contract for accountability.

How much will it cost?

What is the Cancellation & Refund Policy?
Payment for the program is due at the first meeting on January 12.   Once you commit to the program, no refunds are available. The Songwriting group will have its own password protected webpage where the class will communicate. Assignments and handouts will be posted, as well as videos recapping the meetings. 
Anyone needing to miss any of the monthly meetings will be able to catch up online.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
