Our intrepid Iris & Pete will provide sound engineering, powered by Solar Punch’s solar equipment. In case of rain, we’ll move the performances to a really big tent.
Don’t want to pay admission? Then volunteer! This is a grass-roots event and we need a lot of help. Check out our volunteer section for further information.
Lyric and Songwriting Workshop Series presented by Tribes Hill
Tribes Hill is proud to announce its second Songwriting Workshop series for the New York metro and lower Hudson Valley areas. We are starting with a lyric-writing subseries and continuing with a series of guest teachers who help you put it all together. In addition we will offer preparatory classes for those who want to get their basic skills up to speed. Class size will be limited to give participants individual attention.
The Lyric and 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 11 sessions (usually but not always weekly) followed by a performance for family and friends. The first 4 sessions will focus on lyrics with veteran songwriter and teacher Ina May Wool, www.inamaywool.com.
The next seven sessions will feature guest artists along with a concluding session with the series facilitator to consolidate gains.
Series locations: a private home in Hartsdale.
Times and Dates: Sundays, 3 to 5:30 PM, from September 21 to mid-December.
About the guest artists:
Each of our guest teaching artists is a professional songwriter with years of experience. We are finalizing our list of teachers now and will announce it soon.
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 these classes email Steve at email@example.com
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.
8 maximum, in order to give each participant attention.
High school and up
$370 for 11 sessions and a concluding performance. If you wish to take the lyric-writing section or the guest-teacher section by itself, please contact Steve.
