  • Teaching by Robert Sterling (via Skype)
  • Lunch
  • 3 songs critiqued in front of the group for learning purposes (1st 3 to register, send a lyric sheet and recording of their song – piano/vocal or guitar/vocal is all that’s necessary.) 

What to bring:

  • If you are one of the first 3 to register and have sent a lyric sheet and recording to be critiqued, please bring copies of the lyric sheet for the group to see and a recording so we can hear it before Ed critiques the song. 
  • Open heart and mind. It can be a daunting experience to hear a critique of what you’ve created, but it’s one of the best ways I know to grow as a songwriter, so come with thick skin and open mind.
