The Songsalive! Song Sessions - Virtual Event + guest speaker Matthew Moran

On Monday April 6, 6pm PST* Songsalive! continues their 20 year success of advancing songwriters and composers worldwide. Are you a songwriter willing to take your songs to the next level? Workshop your songs to be the best they can be, to showcase them to the world. THIS EVENT IS A VIRTUAL EVENT! Attend in the comfort of your home via Zoom.

Participate from anywhere in the world. (Monday 6th April, 6pm PST - Check your local timezone here)

Hosted by the Songsalive! Team, Gilli Moon, Rik Lawrence and Rod O'Riley , The Songsalive! Song Sessions are open to our Members worldwide and is open to songwriters, composers, lyricists and music creators of original music.

The first part - Song Critique Session - focuses on in-the-round song critique where Songsalive!, the special music industry guest speaker in attendance, and each other provide feedback and positive critique, sharing insights on how to take your song to the next level. See below on how to prepare.

The second part - Music Industry Guest Speaker - We have Matthew Moran - a songwriter, author, technologist, and content creator based in Los Angeles, California. He performs solo and with his band, Arrogant Sage. 

HIS TOPIC: The Proactive Songwriter: In this presentation, Matthew Moran discusses his songwriting process, how to became a more prolific and proficient as a songwriter, and innovative ways to get your music in front of new listeners - including how I built a national house concert circuit.

Attendees will learn about:

  • Ideas: Where they come from
  • Rhyming schemes to avoid
  • Music First or Lyrics First
  • Good venues versus bad venues
  • Do you want a band or not?
  • How to handle critics versus critique.
  • House Concerts and other non-traditional venue
Come ready with your songs for feedback and create long lasting relationships in the songwriting community. Songsalive! is your songwriters squad!


Come prepared to participate

1. Join the Zoom link on time! (RSVP Below and the Event Details shares the zoom link). Critique sign up order will be randomly pulled if a large number.

2. Presenting a song for critique is not mandatory. But if you are presenting, be prepared to share your lyric sheet (if not an instrumental) via zoom. So have it typed up.

3. If playing live, have your instrument ready to perform in front of your webcam with mic and video on. 

4. If sharing a recording of your song, you will need to have it somewhere on the Internet with a link, and during the Session you will provide the link in the Zoom chat feature. 

5. You do NOT need to participate as a presenter for song critique. You can also listen in, offer critique for others, learn and collaborate! Bring your questions for the Music Industry Guest Speaker also!


COST: FREE for Songsalive! Members.
RSVPs and details are only available at Songsalive! Backstage for Members
