Greetings, Songwriters!
We'll be meeting on Thursday, February 20, for a co-writing workshop. There's no better way to build your songwriting and people skills than working with other songwriters to create a song. Lasting collaborative relationships and completed songs have resulted from past co-writing workshops, but whatever the result, you'll learn and benefit from the experience!

Thursday, February 20, 2020, 7 - 10 PM
Messiah United Methodist Church
527 Ridge Pike
Lafayette Hill PA 19444 (Parking in back)

We'll be breaking into small groups (2-5, depending on number attending) to co-write. Everyone is encouraged to bring a song idea that THEY ARE WILLING TO SHARE (a song concept, a title or hook, or a partial-unfinished lyric), which they’ll share with their group. The group will then choose an idea from among those suggested, or come up with a new one. We'll reconvene to talk about our experiences with our groups, and share what we've written. We'll also briefly look at what’s involved on the “business side” of co-writing, regarding agreements, publishing, and more. Bring your guitar, or small keyboard.

Normally, co-writing workshops take up most of the evening... but, IF TIME ALLOWS, we'll do song evaluations. Be prepared by bringing 10 lyric sheets for the best feedback, MP3 on phone, CD, or perform live.

Organization Will Use Challenge to Create New Member Opportunities
As information and advice has continued to evolve, we have made the decision to stop NSAI Regional Chapter meetings for now and to close the NSAI office in Nashville to the public until further notice. 
During this time, our entire staff will be working from home to offer a new level of online service to our members.  All online programs and services will continue to be available and our phone lines will remain open. 
Member representatives and mentors can and will continue to hold meetings via electronic means. 
Please stay tuned to the NSAI website and socials for updates as we continue to navigate this difficult situation.
