Telling A Story About Your Truth: A Songwriting Workshop with Alice Osborn

October 25, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Event Navigation

Accomplished songwriter and poet Alice Osborn will host a songwriting workshop on October 25 at 6 p.m. via Zoom. Registration costs $20 and is open to the public. Register here.

Songwriting is storytelling, and telling your story in a compelling way is all about detail. It’s about what you say, and what you don’t say. It’s about the truth, not necessarily the facts. Songwriting is about bottling emotion in a rocket and letting the melody stake its course. In this intensive workshop, we’ll explore the process of songwriting—the art and the craft and the delicate balance between the two. Through prompts to get the pump primed, we’ll release our truth to craft the start of memorable lyrics that won’t be easily forgotten by your listeners. Students with all musical backgrounds and levels of ability are welcome.

Alice Osborn seizes the call of home, identity, and history to influence her neo-folk vibe on acoustic guitar. She is the founder, lead singer/guitarist of her Truckee, California-based band, Alice & the Wonderlandz. Listen more at www.aliceosborn.com
