Let’s Write a Song

Time: 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Location: Gabriola Arts & Heritage Centre

More Info: Maximum 12 participants 
Contact: Paul Gellman
Tickets: $30

Paul Gellman is well-known to the Gabriola community, and has been facilitating a weekly music workshop for seven years.  He has written over a hundred songs, and brings his experience to this workshop to help others collaborate and create a song!


The main purpose of this workshop – besides having fun – is to gather a group of musicians of all levels and types, and to “workshop” how to create a song together.  We would start with the songwriting process – how do we start?  Is it music or lyrics?  What style?  What message?  I would explain my own songwriting process with some examples, and then we would brainstorm to see what comes up.  Hopefully by the end of the two hours.

Materials to bring: participants will bring something to write on or with and  their instrument(s).
