We're meeting again on Thursday, May 16, 7-10 PM. Our discussion topic is "Writing for Sync", followed by song evaluations. Details follow:
WRITING FOR SYNC
Thursday, May 16, 2019, 7 - 10 PM
Messiah United Methodist Church
527 Ridge Pike
Lafayette Hill PA 19444 (Parking in back)
Sync - music for television and film - is a whole different world of songwriting. Writing for tv and film deserves a completely different mindset (most of the time) than writing in a specific genre. We'll watch videos from NSAI that offer advice for sync placement, and look at exercises that can be done for honing sync-writing skills.
Following the discussion will be song evaluations. Please bring 6 lyric sheets. You can perform live, play MP3, or CD.
RSVPs appreciated by reply e-mail if you plan to attend. Non-members, guests welcome!
