What we're about

This is a group for songwriters! Many of the events will be geared toward advanced songwriters and musicians, but there will also be events specifically tailored for those with no musical background or who have never written a song to help them learn how.

The goal of this group is to inspire the creative songwriting genius within each of us.

We host regular workshops that will include the following:

-Feedback on YOUR songs

-Strategies for improving songwriting

-Techniques to jumpstart the songwriting process for novice songwriters

-Music theory training

-Music industry and performance resources

In addition, we will be hosting casual group Meetups which gives you the opportunity to meet and collaborate with other songwriters! This group is sponsored by LimitlessSongwriting.com, which offers songwriting workshops and private lessons to students all over the world.

I think it can also be possible in the events, where we can have a networking part before and at the end of the event.

IF YOU WANT TO COLABORATE with other people in the group, please, add a comment here with all you can offer and what you require. An thus, other people would contact to to start working and colaborating. This is another proposal you all can take part in. As I know, I love this group because it is formed by a lot of talented people that I consider can achieve many things if we work together. THIS IS NOT AN EVENT As this is going to be a proposal, forget about the date and place. MeetUP requires that all events have a date and place. We will change this event when the date is closer to turn it into a never ending project. As a translator of literary texts and especially poetry, I always consider very important that all the resulting translations and lyrics written in English have the quality and features the English language requires for poems and songs to sound well, with a fluent rhythm. In my case, I am going to offer myself for those: -who have lyrics in Spanish and want to translate them into English -who have lyrics in English and want to have them translated into English -who have lyrics in English and want them to be improved, adapted, reviewed In case you want to translate a batch of songs from Spanish into English or you want me to revise and improve them, I can do the first for free and the whole batch with an affordable price. I also ask other people who can speak and dare to translate my songs into French, Italian, Russian, German... We could collaborate to do different things at no cost for any of the parts. Also I consider interesting to translate songs in exchange of musical adaptation or recording of my songs in different languages. And as you know, I offer myself to translate or review a song in exchange of the possibility that you play this or other song in one of my events. If you have any question, send me a private message or an email: [masked]
