About TPS Songwriting Seminar:

Join us, no matter your experience or genre, for 2 days of industry/songwriter panels, publisher break-out sessions, a chance to play at the 2018 Tin Pan South Songwriters Festival and more!

Tin Pan South Songwriting Seminar, formerly known as NSAI Spring Training, is NSAI’s longest running event, and for over 20 years 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 (Pontoon – Little Big Town) and Lance Carpenter (Love Me Like You Mean It – Kelsea Ballerini). 


Want a chance to play Tin Pan South? 
This is your opportunity for a chance to play the world’s largest songwriters festival, Tin Pan South!

All Seminar attendees will have a chance to enter their song for consideration. The NSAI staff will compile all submissions and narrow them down to the top 24. The top 24 songs will appear on a private webpage, similar to NSAI's Top 40 Song Page, for all Seminar 2018 attendees to cast their votes for the top 12 songs. Attendees will be emailed a link prior to the event where they can first enter their song, and then cast their vote for their favorite songs! The writers of the top 24 songs and the top 12 winners will be revealed at the conclusion of the event on Tuesday, April 3. The writers of the 12 winning songs will have the opportunity to play their song during the Tin Pan South Songwriters Festival later that evening. Please know if you are chosen, you will need to perform the entered song live. Only enter if you are comfortable with performing live. We will not provide an accompanist for you.
