Songwriting and Performance: Finding Your Path
April 20 - 22, 2018
One of the biggest challenges facing any songwriter is blazing your own path in creative writing and performance. As one of Atlanta’s most respected musicians and singer/songwriters, DeDe offers the expertise to help you sort through the tools necessary for creating and presenting quality bodies of work. You will have the opportunity to spend time with her in small groups and one on one.
Focuses will include information and direction on creative and formula songwriting, defining your style, music arrangement and construction, exercises in co-writing, work ethics and goal setting, communicating to an audience, understanding the technical side of audio and how to speak the language, how to choose/do you need a producer, and more.
Whether beginner or pro, there is much to learn and share when delving into the logistics and creative territory of music composition, lyric construction and performance. Please join DeDe as she works to help you uncover a little of the mystery, leaving plenty enough hidden – enough for discovering and creating your own path.
