LYRIC WORKSHOP with MELAENA CADIZ
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
This workshop is dedicated to songwriting from each of our unique perspectives and experiences in the world. By diving deeply into our own stories we'll surface with songs that are as unique as they are personal and universal.
In a nurturing, supportive and playful small group we will:
Share completed songs and songs in progress and receive feedback
Work on honing specificity, creating powerful visuals, and storytelling by showing, not telling
Experiment with forms: Object songs, Story songs, Conversation, Character, among others
Create a community for the opportunity for support, & accountability
