NSAI St. Louis, MO Chapter

Meetings consist of discussing topics on the craft of songwriting or on the music business.  Occasionally, we have a guest speaker in the music industry, such as a songwriter,  music publisher, or artist. We also have a coaching session in which members (followed by guests) can play their songs live or play a recording, for feedback from the group in attendance.  They may also present lyrics only, if the melody is not written yet. Those who are presenting a song should bring 10 copies of their lyric sheet.


Meeting dates and locations vary each month. Contact one of the workshop coordinators to be included in the distribution list so that you receive meeting notifications and cancellations via email.
