• What we'll do
Open to all skill levels and Instruments, join us to connect with a small group of likeminded individuals to hone the craft of songwriting. Engage in collaborative discussions, experiment with new techniques, let your songs find an open an honest environment to grow and flourish. All criticism will be constructive, everyone will be welcome to play; no one will be forced to play. This is a great opportunity to network with local musicians, experience personal growth, and engage with a community. Participate in monthly creativity challenges (“The Four Right Chords”, “Tell a Story”, “Send a Message”, “Laws of Nature”, “Reverse Engineering”, “No People”, “About a Stranger”, “No Chorus”, “Tell a joke”, “Decades” and many more… we may vote on these) or play that ballad you’ve been working on for years. No covers, this is about YOUR songs. The golden rules: Stay positive, take pride in your work, and always support your fellow musician: we’re all in this together!
