The Oklahoma City Chapter of Nashville Songwriters Association International currently holds Chapter Meetings on one Monday of every month, 6:30pm CST. Meetings can be joined either in-person or virtually, and are open to both NSAI Members and to the public! Meetings consist of a brief presentation by Chapter Coordinators on some element of songwriting craft, followed by opportunities for all participants to share one song they've written and receive peer feedback about their song from everyone else in attendance. There is also plenty of discussion, networking and mingling. Songwriters of all genres and all levels of ability are welcome.
Due to concerns over the spread of COVID-19, we are temporarily moving our monthly chapter meetings online via the Zoom platform. We are still holding them at our usual day and time, every second Monday at 6:30pm CST. Each meeting includes a discussion in songwriting tips from NSAI, followed by a peer-feedback workshop in which participant songwriters can share their work and receive valuable critique from other local songsmiths. Participation is free for paying NSAI members, and for non-members it is free for your first two meetings and $15 per participation after that.
For anyone who wants to join a virtual Chapter Meeting, contact our Chapter Coordinators and let us know. We will send you some instructions to get you plugged in!
Starting January 2020 we will have our regular monthly chapter meetings and song critiques at the Academy of Contemporary Music in Bricktown!
Come join us to get feedback and critique on your song by other locals as passionate about the craft of songwriting as you are. Or come to network with potential co-writers and collaborators! Participation is free for all NSAI members. Participants who are not NSAI members can attend two times for free, and then are asked to pay $15 per meeting. Any genre of music and all levels of experience are welcomed to join us. If you are presenting a song with lyrics, please bring 15 copies of a lyric sheet to pass out to everyone. Come prepared to either perform your song live for everyone, or bring a recording on a flash drive, CD, or any device with an 1/8" (headphone) output jack. A system to play these recordings on will be provided, or you can bring your own portable speaker if you prefer.
