Our Songwriter Circle gives songwriters an opportunity to interact with other songwriters of all levels in a constructive environment. All genres of music are welcome.  The group is here to help in the creative process. Expect to give and hear meaningful feedback and encouragement.    The workshop is a great way to meet fellow songwriters or get a new perspective on your song. 

Peer Review and Feedback Session Format
Members should bring one finished or unfinished song to share. 

1) Bring ten copies of typed lyric sheets of your song.  If you wish to present a song without lyrics, please provide a page with the title of your song and a description of the type of feedback you would like from the group.  The group will write comments on these pages as we listen to your song and pass the pages back to you after we listen to your song.

2) Before you present your song, please direct the group to what you would like them to focus on: lyrics, melody, harmony, rhythm, musicality, structure, arrangement or something else.
Our goal will be to give honest, supportive, and constructive input.  Complements are wonderful but they don't help you stretch to become a better writer. An honest opinion is hard to come by and should be valued.  Family and friends love your song because they love you. 
3) Present your song by reading the lyrics, singing with or without an instrument, or playing a pre-recorded version. A keyboard and a PA will be available.  If you need a guitar or other instrument please bring that with you.
4) After you present your song, the group will discuss your song for a few moments and then return the papers to you with feedback.
