Songwriters Clinics

Weekend Learning: Friday Evenings 7 pm - 9 pm, Saturday 10 am - 3 pm & Sunday 10 am - 2 pm

12 hours of coaching for up to 10 participants with songwriting coach and singer-songwriter Charlotte Yates. 
Prerequisite - some basic ability on an instrument (guitar, ukulele, piano). 

Get your songwriting mojo on for a weekend with an arsenal of tools that will lift you to your next level of 'woo hoo' in the company of likeminded folks. The clinic is highly hands on as you take on board some of the latest techniques that will help you improve your ability to connect with an audience, start a song from scratch, deal with 'writer's block' and lose the 'cheese' from your chorus. 

Learn how to set yourself up for sustained songwriting, how to improve the details in your lyrics, how to structure your song to best get your message across and how to keep your audience's attention. Practical and purposeful, the songwriting clinic will boost your confidence in your abilities and your passion for your songs. Is this for you? If you're already writing or trying to write songs, if you have some instrumental skill, if you can hold a tune long enough to show us how it goes, then absolutely. If you're in a band or performing, if you've had a release and need new direction, then this is for you too. If you've felt out of the musical loop for a while and want back in, then this is how you can reconnect.
