Songwriting Immersion Day (online) workshop with Dan Whitehouse

Completely immerse yourself for a day in all things songwriting and write several songs (or song sketches). Working by ear, and improvisation, not music theory based, the immersion method uses simple musical games and exercises to re-connect writers with their inner-child creative self. This helps unlock blocks and provides stimulus and motivation to generate new and original raw material.

Narrative Songwriting Workshop (online) with Dan Whitehouse

A useful technique to use when you have an idea that your instinct tells you is worthy, but your brain won’t allow you to complete! This approach may help you to break through the poetic barrier and actually write about what you want to write about. The story itself can be stronger than the words that tell it. You’ll find it useful when composing ‘story songs’ and also it will show you a way of expanding the choice of words and lines at your disposal for ‘direct message’ songs.
