A note from Drl: Songwriting INTENSIVE - Nashville, TN - May 26-29, 2014
we at SongFood are at it again, i am leading another songwriting workshop in may of 2014 in nashville at the scarritt-bennett center

why scarritt-bennett? LOCATION
- between vanderbilt university and music row
is this jewel of a former, small college - (think hogwarts looking buildings for songwriters)- the lodging and class meetings are here (lunch/dinner options are very near & breakfast is included and on our campus)

why nashville? the songwriting pool of amazing writers and teachers and practitioners of the art of making songs is highest here than anywhere in the world - i can and will ask some of these writers to join our gathering as teachers, listeners, guides, in their songs, in your songs- (last time as guest teachers we had guy clark, mary gauthier, beth nielsen chapman, david olney and me) -

why mon-thurs? why not over a weekend (fri-sun)? to allow working, travellng singer/songwriters the opportunity to be there, too, from their weekend gigs (both teachers and students) - this does not mean you have to be a working, travelling songwriter to be in this - this is also for people who do not do this for a living - but wanna write their song, tell their story- the focus is on song and expression not business

who is it for? i have had students who have put out 5 of their own records and students who have never written or completed a song, and everything in between- all are welcome - all are apropriate - all will learn what they need - all will learn from each other and from the guides/teachers that will be there

what will we cover? songwriting as expression, as art, as deep communication - this is NOT a hit writing workshop AT ALL - the location is nashville- however, the songs are neither country nor music row stuff - it will be about tending to and finding your own voice as a songwriter -

the truest songs are at once, very personal and universal - we will look at this throughout the week -

bring the will to open and you will be fine
