NEW RULES FOR SONG CRITIQUES AT OUR WORKSHOPS
1. Must be on time - 15 minutes after the start time is too late to beconsidered for a song critique.
2. Current financial members get priority. Non-members can present once all members who want to present have been accounted for.
3. First timers can sit, watch, listen and give critique, but not present a song.
4. Non-members pay only $5 to come; free to members (keep your membership current by logging into your profile at www.songsalive.org)
5. We are no longer doing first come first serve, but rather pulling numbers out of a hat. This will keep it fair. However, you need to arrive early/on time to be considered to present a song.
6. Read the workshop rules at www.songsalive.org/workshops and download a PDF flyer on how to give and receive critique.
7. Come prepared! 1 song either on tape, CD or live (bring own guitar or keyboard for an unplugged performance) and up to 20 copies of your typed lyric sheet with contact details clearly displayed.
