Songwriting Workshop

Songwriting Workshop

Wednesday, 27 February 2019, 7.30pm

Whether you are new to songwriting and would like to take your music beyond the shower, or you have already written songs but would like to have a better grounding in the basics, the New School's six-week Songwriting Workshop, taught by acclaimed songwriter and musician Kieran McEvoy, will help you to develop your creative ideas – in any musical style – and turn them into finished songs.

Songwriting Workshop classes are intended to be instructive, encouraging and collaborative. And participants whose primary interest is lyric writing, music writing – or both – are welcome.

Participants showcase some of the material they have written – both individually and collectively – in a final performance, open to the public. You are encouraged to invite family and friends along!

‘This course gave me great confidence in songwriting, and to have the guidance of a professional songwriter was so helpful. The course helped me both lyrically and musically to realise my songwriting potential, and I am now constantly writing new material.’
– A. Bradley

‘Kieran’s relaxed way of teaching makes you feel at home on the course and gives you the confidence to perform in front of your fellow classmates. I can’t believe I stood up in front of a room full of people and performed my own songs! It was an amazing experience.’
– F. Hannon

‘I finished four songs and found my melodic voice, which I thought was impossible as I don’t play an instrument. I’d like to do a more advanced class with Kieran!’
– S. Kelly
