Tribes Hill Songwriting Workshops

Tribes Hill Songwriting Workshops

Songwriting Workshops
Presented by
The Tribes Hill Music Community
Have you ever wanted to write songs or improve your songwriting ability?

Tribes Hill is proud to announce its first Songwriting Workshops for the New York metro and lower Hudson Valley areas.  We are offering a Songwriting Workshop Series as well as preparatory classes.
The Songwriting Workshop Series

If you already have some basic song-playing skills this series is an opportunity to:
·        Build confidence to express yourself in a supportive environment  
·        Develop songcraft and explore lyric voices
·        Access places inside where songs come from  

The series will run for 8 sessions (usually but not always weekly) followed by a performance for family and friends. Seven sessions will feature guest artists. We’ve added a concluding session with the series facilitator to consolidate gains.
Series locations: a private home in Hartsdale and ArtsWestchester in White Plains.
Times and Dates: Sundays, 3 to 5:30 PM, from March 23 to late May.  

About the guest artists:
Each of our guest teaching artists is a professional songwriter with years of experience.  We're honored to have the following songwriters for this series:
3/23: Matt Turk       
3/30: Elaine Romanelli
4/06: James Durst    
4/27: Josh Joffen     
5/04: Ina May Wool
5/11: Fred Gillen Jr. 
5/18: Honor Finnegan

(Teaching order and artists are subject to change).
Workshop facilitator:  
Stephen Scholle. Steve is a psychologist, teacher and songwriter, with a love of "creative workshopping".  He has developed workshops for the Focusing Institute, The Empowerment Center and other groups devoted to personal growth, and has taught music to kids with UpBeatNYC. His songs are at

Preparatory Classes:
We will also offer preparatory classes, a music 101, for those who want to learn beginning song theory with keyboard and/or guitar. These classes will run prior to and during the early weeks of the Songwriting Series. They will run according to need.  Cost is separate.  For more information on this series of classes email Steve at  

Do I need to know how to play an instrument?
No, but we'll recommend you start with the Preparatory Classes to get some basic chord progressions under your fingers.
Do I need to know how to sing on pitch?
No, but we can help you with that. That way you'll be able to express your musical ideas better.
What if I can only make part of the series?
We will have a limit on class size, so you will be responsible for the series fees.  We can discuss special situations.
Class size?
10 maximum, in order to give each participant attention.

Age limits?
High school and up

$250 for 8 sessions and a concluding performance.
About Tribes Hill:
We are a collaborative non-profit community of musicians and music lovers centered in the lower Hudson Valley.  Since 2002 we have presented concert performances, monthly gatherings, song circles, benefits and fundraisers.  Please visit us at
