Nashville-Style Co-Music Writing Session - One Time Only!

Ages: 15+
This three hour workshop will incorporate the professional Nashville writing style into a classic co-writing session. The first part of the work shop will be a short lecture as guest instructor Daphne Willis covers the basics of a co-writing session, phrasing, melodic balance and build, structure, writing for other artists/film and TV. Then the second part of the workshop students will break into groups and get to work. Given time students will take turns sharing material and learning together as Daphne provides feedback and answers questions regarding the songwriting process or the industry.

Writers are encouraged to bring instruments, unfinished ideas, titles, melodies, etc. Because everyone has a different process, the songs may not get finished in the workshop and will require students to either get together at a later time to finish their work, or follow up with Daphne individually via email within two weeks of the workshop.

Whether you are a professional songwriter, just starting out, or you only sing in the shower, all students can get something out of this workshop. Songwriting is all about connecting with a concept or idea and fully expressing it in a song. Co-writing takes it a step further and challenges you to be open minded and vulnerable in a creative space. It’s fun, therapeutic, and a great way to connect with others in your community!
