The workshop will cover the methods of melody making, rhythm, dynamics, and expression – and participants will be invited to contribute to writing meaningful lyrics.

This session is designed for anyone interested in songwriting, from beginners to those with some experience, aged 18+.
Tickets – $30; $20 for GRLC Members; $10 Concession.
