With Host and Guest Speaker Jimi Yamagishi presenting a song critique session first half, followed by industry discussion focusing on "Networking: How to let the people you know help you meet the people you need".
Songsalive! holds workshops where songwriters gather to share their songs, gain feedback and develop relationships within the songwriting communities we have created around the world. The first half is solely dedicated to an in-the-round workshop where writers present one song each - either on tape, CD or live - followed by a guest speaker/industry discussion in the second half and plenty of time to talk and network.
