The Fine Art of Songwriting with Steve Leslie

How many times have you heard the phrase “tell me a story?” Songwriting is storytelling: its about what to say. It’s about telling the truth, and giving people a “voice”. In this workshop, we’ll explore the process of songwriting - the art, the craft, and the delicate balance between the two. Grammy-Award winning Steve Leslie will work closely with all levels of writers to explore the poetry, rhythms, and melodies that share your message in an original way. Writers of all skill levels will benefit from Steve’s experience of 25 years as a professional songwriter.

Everyone has a story to tell. Participants will have an open invitation to perform their original song on a future QPAC Live! broadcast.
