Songwriting Workshops - 10:45 am (youth), 1pm (students & adults)
33 Main St. (Rte. 12)
Central Village, CT 06332 [map]
Price: $10 (advance registration)

Andrew leads two interactive workshops on the basics of lyric writing and development, simple song structure, finding melody and rhythm, and some basic editing techniques to make a song stronger. Learn tips and tricks for breaking writer's block and manipulating syllables to craft lines that "stick with you".

At 10:45am, the 1-hour session will be geared towards young writers with a curiosity about songwriting, 4th through 8th grade. We'll work together as a group to craft a basic song, illustrating the techniques and having a blast creating something together.

Beginning at 1pm, a 90-minute session for adults and high school writers will focus on helping individuals writing a song. You are welcome to bring a song idea, a work in progress, or a finished draft - and of course, your instrument. Non-musical writers and beginners are welcome too, as well as more experienced songwriters.

The cost of the workshop is $10 in advance, $15 at the door. Reserve your spot by email. Lunch will be available for purchase at the church from noon to 1pm.
