Harriet Schock wrote the words and music to the Grammy-nominated #1 hit, “Ain’t No Way To Treat A Lady” plus many songs for other artists, TV shows and films. She co-wrote the theme for “Jakers! The Adventures of Piggley Winks,” currently showing in 30 countries. She and her band were featured in Henry Jaglom’s film “Irene In Time” performing 4 of Harriet’s songs. She also scored three other Jaglom films and starred in “Just 45 Minutes from Broadway.“ Jaglom’s recent film, “The M Word,” features Harriet’s song “Bein’ a Girl,” performed on camera at the end of the film. Karen Black wrote the play, “Missouri Waltz,” around five of Harriet’s songs, which ran for 6 weeks at the Blank Theatre in Hollywood as well as in Macon, Georgia. In 2007, Los Angeles Women in Music honored Harriet with their Career Achievement and Industry Contribution award. Harriet teaches songwriting privately, in classes and a popular online course by private email.  www.harrietschock.com

All Songsalive! Orange County Workshop

 

Let's make an MP3 recording from start to finish!

Songsalive!, the largest international non-profit organization supporting, promoting and educating songwriters and composers worldwide since 1997 brings you another songwriting workshop. 

Are you a songwriter willing to take your songs to the next level? Workshop your songs to be the best they can be, and get them out to the world. The Songsalive! Workshops are open to all songwriters, composers, musicians, singers and music lovers and we've been doing this for 20 years!!!!

This is your chance to develop your songwriting in a supportive and intimate environment, meet invaluable music industry experts, network with fellow members, and be part of your local songwriters community. The first half is solely dedicated to an in-the-round critique workshop where writers present one song each - either on CD or live - with feedback and critique given by a guest speaker or the Songsalive! moderator (who in-turn allows some comments from attendees also). The second half is dedicated to a Music Industry educational and informative discussion/talk, often with an industry guest speaker, and plenty of time to talk and network.

 

WHEN: LAST SATURDAY OF THE MONTH

NEXT: Saturday, January 26, 2019

TIME: Starts 6:30 pm SHARP. Ends at 9:30 pm. Please be on time. Late arrivals are not supported. You need to come for the whole event!

 

WHERE: GOLDENWEST DINER (formerly Spires Restaurant)
13030 Goldenwest Ave.
Westminster, CA
Next to the 22 (Garden Grove) Freeway. 

COST: Free for Songsalive! Pro Members. Non-members pay a donation of $10 to our non-profit efforts. Did you know that our team are volunteers? Lots of sweat and love in this production!

 

TOPIC FOR THE SECOND HALF: "Self-Recording for Songwriters using Reaper, Start to Finish"

This mini-workshop will demonstrate using Reaper, a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) to record a short song. We will start with a basic click/rhythm track, a song scratch track, and then record guitars, vocals, and possibly some percussion. At the end we will create an Mp3 file of the final product. (Reaper is a full-featured recording software, similar to Pro Tools and others with a large community of musicians, engineers, and enthusiasts to help you learn and use the product.)
 
Presented by: Matt Moran

Hosted by: Rod O'Riley

Rod O’Riley is the writing and performing name chosen by the humble and ordinary Rodney Dean Stansfield.  RDS is a guitar seller by day, songwriter by night, and many other things in the hours in between.  A native of Los Angeles, raised in his parents’ native Vancouver, BC, and schooled all over the West Coast.  Currently learning the fine art of bass playing, producing, and letting the computer take care of the hard parts.  Active as an organizer in science fiction fandom, he finds time (somehow) to be an activist for environmental and political causes.  And, of course, for the continued viability of live music and the venues that support it.  In other words, Rodney is a consummate dabbler.  And he is also Chapter Coordinator in Orange County for Songsalive! an international songwriting organization.

~ HOW IT WORKS ~

First half song critique. Second half guest speaker talk.

1. Only Pro Members can receive a song critique

2. First come first serve. We randomly choose (draw) from Pro Members who arrive on time but we cannot guarantee everyone will get an opportunity due to time.

3. First timers can only audit the class (watch).

4. Late arrivals will forfeit ability to receive song critique.

 

~ COME PREPARED ON THE DAY ~

- Where applicable, bring 20 typed copies of your lyric sheet (with full contact details).

- Perform live, or bring song on CD, iPod, phone. Hook up to Stereo provided. This is not a "performance" but a presentation of song.

 

MORE ABOUT THE SONGSALIVE! WORKSHOPS

 

Our guest speakers represent all facets of the industry from A&R, publishers, successful producers, CD production and distribution execs and, of course, writers and composer who share their ideas, tips & techniques on all aspects of the songwriting craft.

Some topics include song structure, song production, lyric writing, finding inspiration, songs and the media, promoting your music online, how to tour, how to get songs in film and television, performing at your best.

Our workshops are designed for songwriters and composers (from budding to professional) who have written songs, or are in the songwriting stage, who want to further their craft, gain feedback on their music, and potentially get their songs out to the world. However, we also have singers, musicians, and non music types who attend as it's a great networking opportunity (singers looking for songwriters, or musicians looking for songs, as examples).

The goals of the workshop are about 1) the SONG and making it the best it can be 2) providing a community for our members to gather, network, collaborate and learn.
