Songsalive!, the largest international non-profit organization supporting, promoting and educating songwriters and composers worldwide since 1997 brings you another songwriting workshop. Learn how to get what you're owed from the music biz! This month we welcome special Guest Speaker Moses Avalon.

Are you a songwriter willing to take your songs to the next level? Workshop your songs to be the best they can be, and get them out to the world. The Songsalive! Workshops are open to all songwriters, composers, musicians, singers and music lovers and we've been doing this for 15 years!!!!

This is your chance to develop your songwriting in a supportive and intimate environment, meet invaluable music industry experts, network with fellow members, and be part of your local songwriters community. The first half is solely dedicated to an in-the-round critique workshop where writers present one song each - either on CD or live - with feedback and critique given by a guest speaker or the Songsalive! moderator (who in-turn allows some comments from attendees also). The second half is dedicated to a Music Industry educational and informative discussion/talk, often with an industry guest speaker, and plenty of time to talk and network.
