Jason Blume

(Also Saturday November 26 and Sunday November 27, Wellington)

NB: each event is a two-day workshop, running through both days.

Want to know how to write your best songs and successfully market your work? Gain insight from internationally successful songwriter/music publisher Jason Blume.

Topics covered in the seminar include:
· Crafting melodies listeners can’t forget; publishers want to sign; and artists want to record
· Lyric techniques to express what’s in your heart – so millions of your listeners can feel it
· Analysis of successful demos
· Taking care of business
· Understanding royalties - and how to earn them
· How & why to get a publisher
· Self-publishing
· Pitching & placing your songs internationally
· Constructive critiques of selected participants’ songs

New topics this year:
"Everything you need to know about placing your songs and music in TV and film."
"Anatomy of a rewrite: learn the specific tools used to turn good songs into great songs"

Selected participants will have an opportunity to receive constructive critiques of one of their songs or lyrics. This includes the first fifteen people to register in each city.

You'll leave inspired, and armed with the tools to take your songwriting to the next level, and understand how to pursue the “business” of the music business.

Comments from attendees of Jason’s workshops:

“No other teacher has Jason's simple, effective and easy to understand ideas for writing songs. I have been to Jason's workshops every year in a row and have learned something new and exciting about writing every time. Since learning his "tools of the trade", I have refined my writing skills to the point where my songs have made it onto commercial radio and I have played them on stages with artists as big as Bon Jovi!” - Nick Roberts - October Rage, Sydney, Australia

"I know how much my students loved Jason, and many would be very happy to go to again" - Sarah McNabb, teacher, Waiheke High School, New Zealand
