Afternoon - Songsalive! Songcamp
This Songsalive! Songcamp is for any budding or professional songwriter, in any music genre, who wishes to hone their songwriting skills, and co-write with other songwriters, creating great songs. This is an impactful, educational and result driven session that includes writing a song with songwriters you've never met. Result: brand new, fabulous songs / new songwriting relationships / learning the art of positive cooperation and co-writing.
Gilli Moon will place pre-registered songwriters (you must be signed up for the weekend's Festival) in small writing teams whereby the writers are asked to come up with a song in only a few hours. They are under the guidance of mentors throughout this process. That evening they will perform their newly written song to the music industry representatives and the general public.
