Basic elements of songwriting will be covered, along with fun, practical group exercises that will benefit everyone’s skillset.  Topics may include but are not limited to idea development, song structure, lyrical prosody, memorable melodies, basics of co-writing, how to give feedback and more. If you have a song to share, please bring a recording or feel free to bring your instrument or voice or both.  A keyboard and microphone will be available if needed.

The series is led by musicians and singer/songwriters Patrick and Alison McHugh.  The McHughs have been making music together for two and a half decades and have a passion for inspiring songwriters and aspiring songwriters to bring forth their unique talents and have a safe space to practice and hone their skills.  Pat is a drummer, guitarist, producer, and sound technician.  Alison is a singer, songwriter, and pianist.

The Wednesday evening gatherings are an informal time for songwriters of all abilities to collaborate in the sharing of their songwriting skills and ideas.  Prior experience is not a requirement.
