Songwriting Couse in January: from The Premises Studio

We’ve just received confirmation of a great new Masterclass tutor for our next Songwriting and Recording Workshop, double Ivor Novello Award winner and founder member of Squeeze, Chris Difford.  Famous for his storytelling, kitchen sink style lyrics he has co-written classics such as Cool for Cats, Up the Junction and Labelled with Love and we’re delighted to welcome him onto our course. We’ll also be bringing in the Vice Chair of the PRS, Paulette Long, for a special session on “Making Money from your Song” – an important part of any songwriter’s knowledge.
The dates for the 5 day course are January 13th – 17th 2012. As well as the masterclass sessions with Chris Difford and Paulette Long the course will be made up of 3 days of intensive tuition with Helen Reddington, one of the most experienced songwriting tutors in the UK today. Over the following 2 days you will have individual recording slots in Studio A with a top session band where you will record a track you’ve written during the course.
The cost is just £395 including the recording sessions. Places are limited to 16 and we expect this to sell out fast

Do you know of any courses for lyricists OR that put lyricists in touch with musicians who need lyricists. I can't write music for toffee but have loved writing lyrics, have written 2 songs with others as the lyricist. thx in advance Tony

This one is good for people who don't play an instrument but who have lyrics and possibly a melody in their head as it allows people to collaborate with each other. We did one in the summer and it worked really well that way.
If you have lyrics and fancy doing the course I am certain that you will find musicians willing to bring your songs to life with music!
