Songwriting for Voices - A 3 Day Songwriting Workshop

A Songwriting Workshop for Twelve Women, with Helen Chadwick.


At a Glance
- A retreat-like experience
- Learn improvisation and fun techniques to make new work
- Group and solo activities

The atmosphere in Helen’s workshops is supportive, focused and fun. A willingness to play and just go for it without stumbling over too much self criticism is a key element of this course(because editing comes later, after creation)! The group can become an ongoing songwriting circle for those who wish.

What You Will Gain
- Time to create some solo and harmony songs
- Access to a new and ongoing songwriting support group
- Time to focus on your own creativity without distraction
- Inspiration from others
