Workshop your songs to be the best they can be, and get them out to the

Hosted by Songsalive!, the largest international non-profit

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
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 may encourage audience comments if time allows).
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.
