What we're about


- If you are a songwriter wanting to achieve success with your song, you can meet with ASCAP affiliated music publisher and award winning songwriter Jacques M. Gentil for the next coming workshop session for critique of members songs in the making.

- We run 2 types of meetings/meetups.

1. A workshop on a weekend presented by award winning songwriter and ASCAP affiliate music publisher Jacques M. Gentil. Beginners & developing songwriters can meet with Jacques and learn tools and techniques that hit songwriters use. Jacques also run a masterclass showing songwriters areas that need to be improved with their songs to attain marketable level. (3 - 4 hours)

2. A 'free' Live Web-Conferencing workshop every other months on the weekend where developing songwriters receive feedback from Jacques M. Gentil on there songs in progress. Attendees may also give their feedback. This is a valuable opportunity for songwriters to take and get their craft improved. (2 - 3 hours)

- Via web-conferencing you can play guitar, piano or keyboard or any other instruments, or play a CD that everyone can hear so everyone can assess the songs. Lyrics can be posted on the virtual whiteboard accessible by anyone wanting to share their thoughts.

- We have been running these workshop opportunities since 2003 way before we joined meetup.com . We have had wonderful times and we have seen successful song results from songwriters who have been attending our meetups in the past, which I will share with those attending.
