London Songwriting and Recording Course – 20th-23rd JUNE 2014

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

We’re delighted to be running our 4-Day Songwriting and Recording Workshop again in June 2014, 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 are bringing in Martin Stephenson for a fantastic masterclass.  Martin is a prolific singer, songwriter and guitarist, most notable for fronting The Daintees who have produced many acclaimed albums since their formation in the 80s.  Their most popular album “Boat to Bolivia” was highly praised by the NME as it  ”builds bridges between love and hate, between cradle and grave, between folk and pop, between the past and the present”. Martin is known for the candidness and honesty of his lyrics and has recorded over 20 solo albums and tours extensively.  We are delighted to welcome him as a new masterclass leader.

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

The dates for the 4 day course are 20th-23rd June 2014. As well as the masterclass sessions with Martin Stephenson and Paulette Long 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.
