Description

The deeper side of songwriting is the practice of knowing your own heart. In this workshop—for music lovers and those at all levels of songwriting experience—you tap into your own channel of inspired originality and create songs straight from the heart.

Led by celebrated singer-songwriters David Wilcox and Beth Nielsen Chapman, you spend the week dancing between spontaneity and structure as you learn how to take that first inkling of an idea and shape it into a song you can be proud of.

Though Wilcox and Chapman make their living from songwriting, they teach the craft not just as a way to make a living but as a way to feel more alive. Through group exercises, solo writing time, examples from the teachers’ storehouse of songs, and help with your own songs, you learn how to write and sing from the center of your voice, unlocking presence, power, and energy with the least effort.
