The most important element in Songwriting
Hello Songwriters and Lyricists, Last year's visit by Pat Pattison was a real hit. Everyone got a lot out of his lessons regarding writing better lyrics. This year's seminar looks great also. Check out the description below. Classes start at 10am and end at 4pm both days. MAKE SURE YOU RSVP AT:
SD Songwriters members get the discount price of $150. I'll be there, hope you can make it too. I guarantee it will help your lyrics and your songs.
All the elements of your song should work together to support the song's central message and emotion. This seminar will show you tools and techniques to make your song stronger and more focused, using structure and phrasing to highlight important ideas, and deepen emotional impact -- techniques that have helped Pat's students, including John Mayer and Gillian Welch, win Grammys and write number one songs.
"I took a class with a great teacher named Pat Pattison... I learned a lot in that class...and I still read that book, Writing Better Lyrics. I think it's great."
-- 7-time Grammy winner John Mayer
“I would not be the writer I am today without [Pat’s] teaching and his unique and comprehensive understanding of language, rhyme, rhythm, and structure. To this day, when I struggle with a lyric and find myself falling short, I am usually ignoring some very sound advice contained in these pages. And I read it again."
-- 3-time Grammy winner Gillian Welch
