Songwriting Workshop With Ellis Paul

April 1, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Art of the Song is proud to present a special Songwriting Workshop with singer/songwriter Ellis Paul

ELLIS PAUL has generously offered to lead a 3-hour songwriting workshop at Art of the Song Coffeehouse! John and Viv met Ellis in 2004 and have enjoyed having him as a guest on Art of the Song several times since because of his mastery of songwriting and love for teaching.

Ellis describes the workshop:

“This will be a three hour class on songwriting, editing, and creativity. It means to inform and inspire and enhance your songwriting voice!

We will deconstruct a few popular songs as examples and ask the question– What is it about these songs that makes them so great? Why have they stood the test of time? What lessons from them can I take into my own writing?

We will also discuss the wellspring sources for ideas, song editing, and the importance of sensory imagery.”
Students need only bring a notebook and pen. It is suggested that students be at least 14 years of age.

When? Saturday April 1 at 1 pm to 4 pm (Doors open at 12:30 pm)

Where? Art of the Song Coffeehouse @ Sol Acting Academy Theater Space (5500 San Mateo Blvd NE Suite 108, Albuquerque, NM 87109)
