Creativity Flourishes within Constraints - Songwriting with Rob Lutes
Gaspésie Literacy Council, in partnership with Wakeham Adult Vocational Education Center, will be holding 5 free songwriting sessions and a final showcase. First session to take place Saturday, Feb. 20th, at 10:30 a.m.
From Rob: "I don't believe there are any hard and fast rules for songwriting. Having practiced and explored the craft for many years, and worked with and read interviews with dozens of songwriters, past and present, I have learned that everyone has an individual approach that works for them. That said, there are helpful techniques for getting the most out of our writing time and our songs. And there are some really useful ways to access the "creative spirit" and get down to writing. That's what these workshops are all about. In these sessions, we will learn by doing, exploring a few different types of songs and ways of finding inspiration. These sessions are for experienced songwriters and novices alike. It's great if you play an instrument but it is not a requirement for participation in these workshops."
