HOW TO PARTICIPATE:
You must be an NSAI Member to fully participate in pitch / feedback workshops.
Bring an MP3 version of your song that you can easily play from your phone, along with two lyric sheets for the song you chose. (Cassette tapes will not be accepted.)
*Members are more than welcome to attend and simply observe the event even if they do not want to submit a song for feedback!
We will play the first verse and first chorus of each song and the guest will provide comments/suggestions/feedback.
Up to 30 members can participate and will be played in order of arrival - Members traveling greater than 75 miles or 2 hours from Davidson County will be given priority to participate.
If you arrive earlier than 5:15pm, please join the line on our covered porch on the Roy Acuff side of building. Once doors open you will sign in and submit your lyrics sheets of the song you chose, to the receptionist for the event.
*NSAI does not require you to wear a mask, but we encourage you to do what feels most comfortable.
NSAI non-members are permitted to observe two workshops prior to joining to experience what NSAI is about. If you have attended more than two workshops as a non-member, you will be asked to join NSAI as a member to fully benefit from membership and attend future events.
Limited parking will be available in the NSAI parking lot.
Additional parking is available on the street and in neighboring paid lots.
