Songwriting Seminar With Joel Lindsay July 21

Award winning and accomplished songwriter, Joel Lindsey presents a Songwriting Seminar on Saturday, July 21, 2012. The Seminar will take place at the Holiday Inn Airport, Evansville, Indiana from 9:00 am to 6:00. “There is nothing else in the world like getting together with a group of like-minded people to discuss the ins and outs of what makes some songs work and others not. I love discussing the process of writing and exploring ways to inspire and motivate all of us to digger deeper into our creative souls,” Lindsey explains.

Students can expect to be the first to experience the curriculum Joel Lindsey has developed for his upcoming book on songwriting. “Attendees will gain fresh insights to the art and heart of songwriting,” Lindsey says. “I guarantee that new and experienced writers alike will find this seminar compelling, enlightening and informative.”

In addition to classroom instruction, everyone who registers for the seminar will receive one song critique. The critiques will provide valuable feedback regarding detailed analysis of lyric, music, structure, commercial appeal and emotional impact. Due to time constraints, a few songs will be critiqued at the seminar for illustration purposes, the rest will be emailed within a week following the seminar. With training and instruction from one of the most gifted, experienced and prolific songwriters of our time, students will find this experience rewarding and beneficial.

There are benefits for early registration and referrals! The first 10 songwriters who register will receive one song critique AND one 45 minute mentoring session via Skype, iChat or phone following the seminar. Also, the first 25 writers to register will be placed in a drawing to receive one year of mentoring sessions (one 45 minute session per month.)

$100.00- Space is limited
There is a $10 discount for every referral who registers.
