A Closer Look: Billy Zenn

It’s time again to take a closer look at the upcoming Instructors for the next Columbus Songwriting Workshop. We’ve asked Billy Zenna little about him and what to expect in his upcoming class. Remember to Pre-Register for only $50, prices will go up soon. Here’s Billy:

CSW: How long have you been writing songs, also tell us a little about what’s next for you.
I’ve written for nearly 40 years, and I’m currently working on a new CD-length project.

CSW: What is your process with writing are you one that writes a little every single day, is it more sporadic? Is the process uniform or is it varied?
Sporadic, definitely. I tend to work as the muse strikes, whether it’s outlining a new tune or finishing something I’ve carried around for awhile.

CSW: Can you share a little about what people can expect in your class?
Being able to perform effectively is key to advancing your songwriting career.After hosting Open Mics around town for many years, I’ve seen a lot of what works , and a lot that could use improvement. We’ll be talking about all of it, as well as getting on our feet to examine various techniques for becoming a better performer.

CSW: Do you have any advice for up and coming writers?
Don’t be afraid to keep your own counsel for long stretches, and don’t be afraid to share your work when the time is right.
