Musicians Guild: Songwriting Strategies for the Guitar

  • 149 West 46th Street (Michiko Studios, Stage Room) New York, NY (map)

Get ready for an absolutely life-changing 2-hour Musicians Guild workshop on several of the most important aspects of guitar playing, including:

• Songwriting Strategies

• Practical Music Theory (The Kind You Actually Can Use)

• How to Write a Melody Hook That Really Catches the Ear 

• How Creative Songwriters Break the "Rules" of Theory to Get Beautiful Results

Without a doubt, this workshop will equip you to express yourself through your music like never before, and it will demystify many of the most confusing aspects of music theory and songwriting.  Whether you're a beginner or a pro, you don't want to miss this one!

One Thing to Help Prepare for This Workshop

Because a variety of skill levels will be present, newer musicians will want to familiarize themselves with the order of the 12 notes on the music octave.  This includes: C, C#, D, D#, E, F, F#, G, G#, A, A#, B, C.  If you have this down, you'll be completely ready to run with the rest of us.  And we're gonna RUN!


Bring your guitar along.  You may also find it helpful to bring a notebook or journal for taking notes as we go along.  We also ask for a $5 entry fee simply to pay for the space.  (If all 30 people pay the entry fee it will just cover the cost of the venue, and that's all we need.)

Maximum Capacity

Because we have scheduled this particular gathering at Michiko Studios, we will be restricted to a 30-person maximum capacity.  With this said, the first 30 to arrive can join the group but we will have to close the doors when we reach capacity.  Thank you in advance for your understanding.
