Happy New Year 2020!

Happy New Year and wishing you all the very best for your songwriting in 2020 – whatever your ambitions, it literally does all begin with a song!

2019 was London Songwriters’ 10th Anniversary and our busiest year of the decade with 52 separate events including regular Lyric and Melody Writing Evening Courses, 3 Countryside Retreat Weeks as well as numerous Film & TV Writing Workshops and Song Critique sessions.

What are your New Year songwriting resolutions? Mine are to release more of my finished tracks and, as always, to write better and better songs.

To that aim, here are some upcoming events to supercharge your songwriting for the Twenties!

It’s the last chance to take our unique, low-cost, high-value Melody, Harmony & Hook Writing 4 Week Evening Course beginning 8th January in Moorgate, Central London. Join us for four weekly, interactive presentations with accompanying practical exercises on Wednesday 8th, 15th, 22nd & 29th January at 6:15 pm.

Don’t miss out and sign up for the early-bird! It’s a great chance to learn or refresh the basics and lots of more advanced concepts too.

“A really helpful, eye-opening course, full of great ideas, tips & tricks”
“Opened up music theory, ear-training & encouraged me to learn an instrument”
“Great to visualise the melodies as well as hear them”
