This meeting will be FREE admission to members and non members - everyone welcome! (we normally charge $15 for non members to defer the room rental cost - but hey, its the holidays!)

Bring a song you are working on. We listen and give feedback that you can use to make your song better if you choose. Please bring 25 typed lyric sheets to pass around. You can play live (we usually have a piano on hand) and bring a guitar - dont worry if you dont have one, people are open to sharing, bring a CD or phone/ipad/ipod to play an mp3.  Iphone 7 or greater please bring adaptor.

All genres of music welcome! Because we are in New York, we listen to everything and encourage you to bring it all!
