Songwriters Social Club

…is about loving to perform and write music and making some new friends.

After a great run of online Songwriters Social Club in Summer 2021, Long Division is now taking this out to the real world!

Each week you will work with a professional musician who will take you through live music sharing from the artists themselves, songwriting stimulus and inspiration activities, songwriting help and guidance, the chance to share and receive peer feedback on your own music, listening time and musical recommendations, along with the chance to just relax and chat too!

The club is open to anyone who is 14 – 18 and is a solo performer. To get the best from this group, you should be able to play a song or two on guitar or piano. You should also be interested in writing your own songs!

There will be 4 sessions working with Sunflower Thieves writing new songs, sharing ideas, and gaining confidence playing them, then for the last session you would play a song or three at a showcase event in Wakefield as part of Artwalk. it’s all free, you get to work with professionals (make connections) and get to play a gig too.

Dates are:

Wed 27th Oct 1 – 3pm @ Wakefield College
Wed 3rd Nov 6:30pm – 8:30pm Golden Pineapple, Wakefield
Wed 10th Nov 6:30pm – 8:30pm Golden Pineapple, Wakefield
