Songwriting. Simultaneously the most rewarding and most hair-pulling experience of any musician's career. You know what we're talking about; the frustration of getting halfway through and running out of inspiration. The ire of trashing an entire composition. The joy of stumbling upon the perfect riff. Late nights, scribbles and notes on trains and in cars, practice sessions in the shower. It's fun, it's challenging, it's time consuming, and it's something we all want to get better at doing. That's why we're holding a workshop for all of you songwriters with legendary artist Declan Kelly.

Declan Kelly has been a songwriter for over 15 years, and continues to grow and explore this craft. He has had the privilege to write and record with a number of artists considered some of Australia's great songwriters of our time, from which have been great teachers to his songwriting—Bernard Fanning, Katie Noonan, Alex Lloyd to name a few.

During the 3 hour workshop we will explore:

* 'The idea'... Getting started on a song can be the hardest bit.

* 'Sketching an arrangement' of the idea to get a rough form of your song.

*'Refining Melody' to your choral structure.

* Then we will discuss ways to go about producing your songs that suits your vocal and style of music.

Bookings essential.
