Pardon our dust around here, it’s been a busy summer! We much appreciate everyone coming to the “Breakout Sessions” workshop we had at the Columbus Cultural Arts Center. Matt Monta was insightful, thoughtful, informative, and mind bending with his workshop. He talked about taking a bunch of ideas and condensing them into a small package, aka a song. In other words the idea was not to just write a bunch of stuff down but to transform your words into poetry. The workshop was great look out for more “Breakout Sessions” in our continuing effort to provide the community with quality classes on writing.
The Columbus Museum of Art will be partnering with us to present the October 6th Columbus Songwriting Workshop! We are super excited to have this Columbus institution on board! We had a small introduction to the space at our July 12th Informal Song Share, check our Facebook for details on upcoming song shares. They are free, and it’s just a chance to share a new or old song with friends, simple enough!
Mark your calendars for October 6th. Our first instructor will be Jesse Henry. If you don’t know, Jesse is one of the finest musicians that has come out of Columbus in many many years. His eclectic sound channels anyone from Woody Guthrie to Louis Jordan. He’ll mak you cry witha sweet country ballad, and in the next moment he’ll have you on the dance floor. We could go all day and he has many more accolades (started a music school in Africa, has his own guitar method books, fronts several amazing bands, etc) We can’t wait for his class, more details to come on that.
You can still pre-register online here for now, but prices will go up soon so do it now. We’ll be working with CMA as a ticketing agent coming up here as well so stay tuned for those details.
