Come, collaborate and share your songs!
We begin our meetup with a themed collaboration session. It doesn't matter what your experience or background, this is a fun informal exercise to help you get to know some of the other songwriters and challenge you to come up with a song in 90mins!
After the collaboration playbacks, there will be a chance to network, share and get feedback about your own songs.
Please bring your instruments. A professional upright electronic keyboard is available at the venue and we may have our own second keyboard for the collaboration groups.
Finally, please come with an open mind and be willing to encourage your fellow songwriters with constructive rather than negative feedback. We are all at different stages of our development as songwriters and this group has been created to support all of us.
A good attendance, buying food and/or drinks will help towards our continued usage of the venue. Please note that only food and drink purchased on the premises can be consumed there.
