Find Your Inner Songwriter
By PAUL BOTHNER MUSIC | October 31, 2018
If you’re tired of playing covers all the time, then you should learn how to find your inner songwriter. By writing your own music, you can discover a new way to express yourself, and rediscover music in a different way. During this FREE workshop Mike Wagner hopes to help you do exactly that.
Like most musical concepts, songwriting is something that you need to practise in order to become proficient. Sure, you can always find a few videos on YouTube to teach you the basics, but the best way to learn is from hands on experiences. By attending this workshop, you can pick the brain of a musician with a wealth of experience.
All Guitar Frenzy workshops are free, but seating is limited. So if you want to ensure that you get a good seat, be sure to arrive early.
