Boo Hewerdine Songwriting Workshop
Saturday Jul 13, 2019 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Learn to write songs from the master!
Boo is famous for his songwriting workshops. He wants to pass along some of the lessons, tricks and processes he’s learned over many years in the business, to help other writers from all levels of expertise write better songs.
Topic covered include:
- Structure – Verse / Chorus / Bridge
- Clarity in lyric
- The importance of meter and rhyme scheme
- The power of telling the truth in lyric using simple language
- Writing from your life – The importance of telling your story
- Creating writing projects for yourself
- The habits of a successful writing life
- Recognizing and building on your strengths as a writer
One of Boo’s proudest moments was teaching Cornwall’s The Changing Room’s Tanya Brittan how to complete those unfinished numbers. She went on to beat him to a writer’s award, and he produced their first album!
This workshop is limited to 15 people. The Goods Shed, Southern Way, Wadebridge, PL27 7BX. Only available as a combined workshop/evening concert ticket.
