Next NSAI Columbus, OH, meeting:

Tuesday, April 17, 2018, at 6:30pm


Hello, everyone!  Our next meeting will be a special one, as NSAI members have an opportunity to present a song to the NSAI committee for consideration ion the Ole Chapter Challenge! Ole is the world's fastest growing rights management company and is a leader in song placement for commercial use.

To participate, please bring a song on CD, phone, or media player. Do not bring a guitar, keyboard, etc, as ONLY pre-recorded music is permitted. After all songs have been played, other NSAI members will vote for their top 2 on a voting card. At the end of the night, Rick Barr and Diane Gee Frasca will tally up the votes and announce the top two winning songs.


More information is available at https://www.nashvillesongwriters.com/nsai-ole-chapter-challenge. Please read this, and let us know if you have questions.


Please note that non-NSAI member are ALWAYS welcome, though at this particular event, only members can play a song and vote. However, it's a great chance to see how the process works and get any questions answered that you may have. Also, you can visit https://www.nashvillesongwriters.com/learn-about-membership to get more details on NSAI membership, and let Rick or Diane know if you have questions.


Looking forward to seeing you all!

Tin Pan South Songwriting Seminar (TPSSS) is the perfect event for songwriters of any genre and any skill level to further develop their songwriting toolkit, build a stronger network, and learn from enriching segments from experts across the music industry. We're excited to reveal a fresh format and a new location in the heart of Music City! As NSAI’s longest-running event (over 20 years) we are proud to say that this seminar has been the standard by which all other Nashville songwriting seminars are measured. Former Spring Training attendees include hit writers Jon Vezner (Where’ve You Been – Kathy Mattea), Tia Sillers (I Hope You Dance – LeAnne Womack), Barry Dean (Girls Chase Boys - Ingrid Michaelson, Pontoon – Little Big Town) and Lance Carpenter (Love Me Like You Mean It – Kelsea Ballerini). Invest in your craft. Meet co-writers. Get inspired.
