London Songwriting and Recording Course 16th – 19th September 2016

“Thanks for such an amazing course. I’ve learned so much and had so many doors open!” – Terry.

STOP PRESS:  New addition to our 2016 course – Masterclass with Piney Gir! 

“Exuberant, bursts with joy, divine and sometimes mournful” Q Magazine top picks
“Sandy Posey twinned with Dolly Parton with exceptionally good lyricism. If Jesus were to hear it, he’d surely approve.” Shindig

Her music has been described as pop country or edgy indie-pop and has appeared on TV’s Grey’s Anatomy, Misfits. Being Human, and Made in Chelsea as well as the feature films Nina Forever, You’re Not You and American Girl.

We’re delighted to be welcoming her on board!

Our 4-Day Songwriting and Recording Workshop will be running again from the 16th – 19th Sept 2016, where we’ll be offering a packed timetable of workshops, recording sessions with a pro band, and masterclasses from some of the most experienced people in the music industry.  Whether you need advice on shaping your lyrics, structuring your songs, enhancing your melodies, are excited by the prospect of making a recording with a professional band or simply want to join a group of songwriters focused on creating a strong personal songwriting identity in a supportive group, this course offers a variety of techniques to enable you to achieve your personal best as a songwriter.

The course will bring out different things in different people, no matter what stage you have reached as a songwriter. Beginners will pick up tips and tricks to get started; more experienced songwriters can address ‘writers block’ or put the finishing touches to material they have been working on independently. There will be opportunities to collaborate and also one-to-one feedback sessions, alongside group work and rehearsals.

We’ll be bringing in the Vice Chair of the PRS, PAULETTE LONG OBE for a special session on “Making Money from your Song” – an essential part of any songwriter’s knowledge.

As well as the masterclass sessions the course will be made up of 3 days of intensive tuition with Helen Reddington, one of the most experienced songwriting tutors in the UK today. On the 4th day you will have individual recording slots in Studio A with a top session band where you will record a track you’ve written during the course.

“Helen is an absolutely brilliant tutor and someone I have the highest respect for.  She is a legend!” Paul

The cost is just £395 including the recording sessions. Places are limited to 10 and we expect this to sell out fast.

“This experience went beyond songwriting and recording and thanks to you, Helen, the whole staff and fellow course-mates this was a productive, artistic and moving educational experience.” Andy.
