Are you a songwriter willing to take your songs to the next level? Workshop your songs to be the best they can be, and get them out to the world. The Songsalive! Long Island Workshop is moderated by Steve Archdeacon on the first Wednesday of every month.
The Songsalive! Workshops are open to all songwriters, composers, musicians, singers and music lovers. This is your chance to develop your songwriting in a supportive and intimate environment, meet invaluable music industry experts, network with fellow members, and be part of your local songwriters community.
Come to regular Songsalive! song critique workshops and develop collaborations, meet industry guests, showcase and gain feedback for your songs and music in a professional and supportive environment.
The Songsalive! workshops are open to all songwriters and music composers of all levels and music genres and you don't have to be a Songsalive! member to attend (though preference is given to Pro members for critique, and we encourage everyone to join Songsalive! to maximize your opportunities with us).
The first half is solely dedicated to an in-the-round critique workshop where writers present one song each - either on tape, CD or live - with feedback and critique given by a guest speaker or the Songsalive! moderator (who in turn allows some comments from attendees also).
The second half is dedicated to an Music Industry educational and informative discussion/talk, often with a guest speaker, and plenty of time to talk and network.
