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.
BILLY ZENN:
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?
BILLY ZENN:
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?
BILLY ZENN:
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?
BILLY ZENN:
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.
