"Is this for me?"

No experience or training is necessary. Songwriting is a great leveller – so if you've only just started songwriting, you write in your bedroom, have performed your own work, or are a seasoned professional, then this is the group for you. Sometimes you need that second music ear on something, and a chance to share what you're working on with like-minded people. Think of this group as an open mic without the pressure!

What to expect

You will be able to share finished songs and songs in progress whilst in an open and generous space, getting genuine and helpful feedback. Come along to this first session to meet like-minded people, share a piece of your music, and let us know about how you’d like these session to run. We want the session to be the best fit for the group, so at the end of the session we will talk about things such as : how regularly you’d like a session like this to take place, where’s best to meet up, how we can all keep in touch, etc.

Whilst the exact format and direction of the group will be decided by the people who come along, it’s likely that the sessions will lead towards recording or live performance, or both! So we have something to work towards together as a new group.

These sessions will be led by Mike Roberts who is an award winning composer and musician with over 20 years of experience, including composing music for the BBC & ITV. Mike will be on hand to help with songwriting techniques and resources.

No need to book, just turn up.
