Tin Pan South Songwriting Seminar (TPSSS) presented by The Fisher Center at Belmont University will be held April  5-6, 2024 at The Fisher Center for the Performing Arts in Nashville, Tennessee. TPSSS is the perfect event for songwriters of any genre and any skill level to further develop their songwriting toolkit, build a stronger network, and learn from enriching segments from experts across the music industry.  

As NSAI’s longest-running event (formerly known as Spring Training) we are proud to say that this seminar has been the standard by which all other Nashville songwriting seminars are measured. Former attendees include hit writers Jon Vezner (Where’ve You Been – Kathy Mattea), Tia Sillers (I Hope You Dance – LeAnne Womack), Barry Dean (Girls Chase Boys - Ingrid Michaelson, Pontoon – Little Big Town) and Lance Carpenter (Love Me Like You Mean It – Kelsea Ballerini). 

Invest in your craft. Meet co-writers. Get inspired.
