Winter Blues Festival Songwriters Studio – Connecting You to Music

“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.” Plato

The ability to express yourself in a positive and creative way is sometimes difficult for young people in traditional Australian school environments where sport is king. There is now significant Neuroscience which shows that playing music is one of the most game-changing positive activities a young person can do to improve their emotional and cognitive abilities. WBFs Songwriters Studio helps participants to discover their tribe, and themselves, and explore the fun, joy, and life changing self-confidence that playing music in a group can deliver.

WBFs Songwriters Studio is a fun and challenging, two day and one evening, highly interactive workshop, where participants will gain theoretical and practical music industry skills from experienced music industry professionals with a strong focus on original song composition. The skills will then be practically applied via a public concert at the Echuca Moama Winter Blues Festival. The performance will feature as many original songs as possible.

WBFs Songwriters Studio is designed for all instruments and is for students from 12 to 25 with an intermediate ability level for instrumentalists and beginner to intermediate level for vocalists. Students with learning difficulties are encouraged to attend.

WBFs Songwriters Studio encourages freedom of expression and fosters cooperation and team building, and also deals with performance skills, song writing, and Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S). Our outstanding group of industry professional tutors have the experience to answer questions on every aspect of performance and the business side of music in a practical and useful way.
