This meeting will allow our members to have their songs played and critiqued by 3 of our favorite local composers/producers- Mark Hattersley, Tracey Marino, and Vance Marino (see bios below). You must bring 3 printed lyrics and be prepared to inform the panel what your intent for your song is (for instance: Film/TV placement, pitch to an artist, for your own recording, just writing for fun, or...?). These 3 special guest panelists are great at helping you with lyrics, composition, arrangement, recording/production, suitability for your song's intention, or anything else you'd like. Mark, Tracey, and Vance will provide constructive guidance helping you reach your goals and improve your skills.

Please RSVP on this page to get a preferred slot. Our intention is that ALL MEMBERS WHO RSVP will have their song heard. Bring your music recording on your mobile phone for us to plug into the sound system. We also will have guitars and pianos at the venue for you to use if you choose to perform live.

You're also welcome to attend and just listen and learn.

MARK HATTERSLEY ( is a local producer, recording engineer, studio owner, composer, and musician. He's performed with many famous musicians and has placed music in countless tv shows and films. TRACEY AND VANCE MARINO ( are IMHO the hardest working composers/songwriters/producers in San Diego with many song placements in film and tv including Disney, Oprah, NBC, ABC,Fox, MTV, and more; they also run the local chapter of the Nashville Songwriters Association (NSAI).
