Songwriting Workshop with John Spillane

Songwriting Workshop with John Spillane

Sunday, 17 March 2024, 12.00pm

Songwriting Workshop with Acclaimed Irish Songwriter John Spillane “At my song writing workshops we actually write songs. Having attended a few workshops where the participants play their songs to be criticised by experts who talk down to them, I was inspired to invent a novel approach, where we all sit down and write a finished song in one session. This teaches many lessons, including finishing things, which is often a big problem for writers. I create a space where all negativity, all criticism and judgment are locked outside.” This masterclass with Meteor award winning songwriter John Spillane will get to the heart of song writing and storytelling. John will focus on helping participants lose whatever inhibitions and fears they may have about writing songs while also sharing tricks of the trade on verse, chorus, repetition and rhyme. Songwriters should be prepared to sing and embrace the joy of the process.
