Meet-n-Greet, Holiday Song Project Kick-Off, Information Session, Open Consult


Creative Musicians & Songwriters is off and running fast with new members joining every week. For those who have been to events already, I thank you for attending, the kind, positive comments and feedback so far. For those that are new, I welcome you.

With that said, it is FALL time and there are several events already starting to be organized and scheduled. We have more open jams, more workshops, and more information coming your way in the next couple of months. Exciting and fun times await.

This session will be an open session to get information on the group, what events are coming up, information on becoming an organizer, give suggestions, come get advice on songwriting, ask general questions, etc. You will also be able to signup for the holiday project (info below).

I will be available during the times posted.


The time has come for this group to practice what we preach; where the rubber meets the road, etc. To celebrate the holidays, participants will write an ORIGINAL Christmas song. Participants will come and sign-up either as individuals or as bands. Each team will then exchange contact information and start planning and writing your song. That’s great if you write more songs but for this project, one song only so pick your best one. The song can be written by one or multiple members. There is no limit on the size of the team but just keep in mind, the more people you have, the more coordination and longer time to develop.

Here is how the process will go:
- September: Orientation kick-off, get band members
- September-October: Write, arrange, practice.
- October: Signup for recording time slot
- October-November: Recording, Mixing, Mastering
- Beginning of December: Publish and Promote

A short presentation will be given to give you all the details. This session is the kickoff where you will get all the info you need to get started. If you cannot make this event, you can still signup online. Just send me an email at [masked] and put in the Subject title, Holiday Project Signup. Include your name and contact information and I will send you the information.


The Children's Music Foundation Music Drive

As the holiday season approaches, I am raising money or accepting used musical instruments to donate to the Children's Music Foundation. All the money raised, I will personally go to a music shop and purchase new instruments and deliver them to foundation myself before December 25th. I personally have pledged to donate at least two Guitar  Value Packs (guitar, strap, amplifier, strap, picks). Help children by giving the gift of music thos holiday season.

You can donate using PayPal or at any Creative Musician & Songwriters event.

The Children's Music Foundation provides free musical instruments, music lessons, and musical performances to children who wouldn't otherwise have access. We custom design each music program to meet the needs of the community we're serving. We take our programs into shelters, schools, hospitals, and, alongside other community organizations that serve underprivileged children. All we ask of participants is that they please 'Play it forward!' by teaching someone else what we've taught them.
