What we're about

Hi songsmiths! The Song Lab at Songsmith LA is a laidback, collaborative, & safe place to join other songwriters, established and new, to:

* get feedback on your new and old songs or ideas
* get a partner or assignment to get you jump-started
* find a producer, lyricist, singer, instrumentalist get inspired by hearing other's struggles and tips
* get coaching or lessons set up to sing, play, or song write
* perform or watch a performance, or sign up to be a featured artist at a house concert.

We meet certain Saturdays and there are weekly prompts and ideas to get you motivated and to see what others do with the same jumping-off point. This is a workshop format facilitated by experienced music teacher, Bobby Apperson. There are also showcases / house concerts, mixers / happy hours for creative types, and group classes: www.songsmith.LA
