CREATIVE GENIUS SONGWRITING - 2019 WINTER Workshop 

 

Do you have a song that begs to be written?

 

Whether you've only dreamt of putting words to music or are looking to

kickstart your songwriting juices, Creative Genius offers a supportive

community in which to do so!

 

Join award winning singer/songwriter Lori Yates on a journey to discover

your "authentic voice" as a songwriter.

 

- Gain confidence in your songwriting ability.

- Quiet the inner critic.

- Learn to trust your intuition.

- Focus on lyrics & melodies.

- Learn the art of re-writing.

- Learn tips on stage craft.

- Deal effectively with performance anxiety.

  

You’ll meet as a group the first 4 weeks at the studio, in the historic

Hotel Hamilton (above the Mulberry Cafe) in the heart of Hamilton's James

St. North arts district.

You'll be given small writing exercises and return each week to present

your newly written work to a small supportive, non-judgemental group of

like-minded folks.

 

You'll have an hour long one-on-one private mentoring session with Lori.

She will gently critique your songs, making suggestions on how to improve

what you've created.

 

Week 5, you move into the recording part of the workshop. You will be

given 1 hour of recording time to record 2 of your songs in a professional

recording studio specifically chosen for the workshop. You will leave with

 a cdr or stick of your newly recorded songs! Lori will be at the recording session

with you as added support.

 

The finale of the workshop will be a live gig at a professional club in the Hamilton area

where you will get to showcase your new songs for family, friends and the general public!
