In these divided days, it is songwriters who are unique and essential among the tribe: songwriters are charged with noticing, understanding, and helping others understand. We find what needs examining and turn it in the light so that others might see themselves, someone else, or something else, as if for the first time.
Whatever your politics, we hope the community of The Songwriting School gives you the encouragement, support, opportunities, and mentorship to elevate your art and your voice in the brave, passionate, and compassionate expression of your truth.
And in divided times, no better time to gather. Here are a few opportunities:
