The workshops are open to EVERYONE... That means you!

Glasgow songwriting festival is a friendly and collaborative learning environment. We cater to all levels from "I've never written a song before" to  "I've got albums out but I'm looking for inspiration and/or people to collaborate with" and everything in between. 

Workshops focus on songwriting 'tools', useful skills that you can take home to improve or supplement your songwriting. Class sizes are restricted to eight participants. The classes of eight will rotate around the four tutors so everyone participating in the festival gets to work with every tutor.

Your fee includes a free ticket to the opening concert on Friday 2nd September and an participants sing around on 3rd September. There will be a limited number of Opening Concert tickets available to non-participants so get in quick as this event always sells out.
