 Pro Songwriting Workshop!
We hope you can come and explore the joy of songwriting
with Grammy winner Don Henry and Grammy Nominee Sally Barris.

This is an all ages, all levels, and all styles workshop.

Here’s a chance for you to:
Play a song that you’ve written and have it seriously listened to and critiqued.
Get advice on the art and craft of songwriting.
Learn how to write songs about anything, anytime, anywhere.

Sometimes it’s hard to know if a song is finished or if it saying what you want it to say. Does it have that magic to transport an audience? Is it a song someone else could sing and if so, what do you do to make that happen? If these are questions you ask yourself then this is the workshop for you!

Please bring:
·       A recording of your song or your instrument to play it live.
·       Song lyrics – copies for Sally and Don – and extras for the class.

Sally and Don are available the next morning (Sept 9) for a once in a lifetime workshop for a small group.  If you are at all interested contact Marie immediately (704-340-6112).
