Songbirds is the Songwriting for Choirs bit of my Patreon page. Every month I post an in-depth worksheet and songwriting lesson video featuring a framework for writing a different kind of song. One of my songwriting strengths lies in writing strong lyrics and here I include lots of creative writing ideas and exercises to help participants create their own powerful songs. Each month there is a songwriting commission for participants to have a go at in their own time; a link to soundtrack resources ‘library’ that I’m building up month by month in order to support participants who enjoy creating through improvisation; a free pdf and recording of an as yet unpublished round or short song; and an in-depth blog about the crafting of songs.
Songbirds began on June 1st 2020 and is an ongoing feast of creative ideas and lessons that you are welcome to join at any time. And if you’d like monthly one-to-one feedback on your work you can upgrade to the Nest tier. Or for one-off mentoring sessions just email me and we can arrange a time for a phonecall or zoom.
