A long weekend of song-related fun!

Excitingly, I seem to have booked myself up for a veritable long weekend of songwriting goodness.

Firstly, on October 20th and 21st I will be attending The Pop Songwriting Workshop at Tileyard Studios, with Penny Foster and Emma Stakes, offering “a rare and detailed insight into the tools, techniques and best practice of writing commercial pop songs to brief.”

The itinerary for the two-day event looks really interesting, with items such as the building blocks of song, the top-line, writing from the heart, monetising songwriting, key stakeholders in songwriting and writing to a brief. I sincerely hope I won’t be asked to introduce myself and then throw a bean-bag at someone.

Second up, on the Monday (its half term so I get to go wild!), I’ll be going to some other trendy London borough to see (and I guess be part of) an audience with Neil Tennant, one of my all time favourite songwriters, and someone whom I shall no doubt wax lyrical (no pun intended) elsewhere on these pages in quite some nauseating depth. He’s releasing a collection of his lyrics and poetry in good old-fashioned book form.

It just remains for me to evacuate my bank account on travel and accommodation!
