A Weekend of Songwriting with Emily Barker (NEW!) with Emily Barker

Join award winning singer-songwriter Emily Barker in this new weekend course where you will examine the art of songwriting! Emily will engage you in a discussion around songwriting and offer writing prompts in the morning of the first day of the workshop, and then encourage you to take part in a co-writing session with other participants in the afternoon. No need to have a buddy, but if you have a friend you would like to co-write sweet tunes with, enrol together! The second day of the workshop offers an opportunity to share and participate in a concert for all participants!

This course offers an excellent opportunity for beginner songwriters, or those with a little more experience to receive great feedback from a seasoned songwriting professional.
