Boost your Creativity through Songwriting: a Taster Session
Give your creativity a boost and try something new by experimenting with songwriting in this informative and playful 90-minute online taster workshop. Led by coach and singer/songwriter Angela Blacklaw, we will:
1. Explore the nature of creativity and the characteristics of the state of “flow”;
2. Learn lessons from established songwriters in how to maintain the creative spark;
3. Start to apply our insights practically, to generate creative ideas while working collaboratively.
No musical experience is required or expected. Whatever your age, profession or background the workshop will be stimulating, insightful and fun.
This session is fully interactive to allow for practice, discussion and feedback. We’ll provide you with downloadable resources to take away.
