What we're about

We're going to work on the craft of songwriting: AABA, Verse/Chorus, 12-bar blues, rhyming, scansion, writing the bridge, writing for musical theatre and cabaret -- all the basics, and we'll go as far as you want to go. This is for beginners, intermediate, or folks who have experience and want to hone their craft. Whether you're a composer/lyricist, or a composer or lyricist, please join us. If you have a work in progress, bring along 15 copies for the rest of the group; if not, just bring your ideas and yourself. If you have an acoustic guitar, bring it for the "lab" part of the meeting, where we work on in-class assignments, alone and in small teams, and present in class (if you're too shy, come anyway, and be a part of the group - Performing your song is not necessary!) The workshop format is listen, teach, discuss, write, present, repeat. This is a workshop: bring pen, notebook/paper, rhyming dictionary if you have (I'll share mine). Email me and let me know what you're specifically interested in. I'll try to accommodate. Hope to see you there!

Baltimore Songwriting Workshop Meetup

Needs a location

We'll have a short lesson (~30 minutes) at the beginning of the session that will include a songwriting assignment. Then we'll share our songs from the last assignment (10 minutes each). If you don't have a song from the assignment, bring whatever you'd like to share, or just come and observe! All are welcome.

We share the cost of the monthly meetups on a voluntary basis. Our group donation link is below. Suggested donation is 5-10 dollars per month, but ONLY if you have it to spare.
