Lead by singer songwriter Dan Whitehouse. a songwriting workshop with the aim to unlock writer’s block and provide stimulus and motivation to generate new and original raw material.
This exercise is based on the book: The Frustrated Songwriter’s Handbook By Karl Coryat and Nicholas Dobson
Working by ear, and improvisation, not music theory based, the immersion method aims to re-connect writers with their inner-child creative self and consists of a series of simple musical games and exercises.
You will have a rough time if you go into this process thinking of it as some kind of test that will reveal how good or bad a songwriter you are, or if you treat the situation like a school assignment, in which work will be assessed by some overseeing authority. Remember you’re playing a game!
