Description:

A 3 day intensive Songwriting course with Ali Burns and Helen Chadwick

THIS HAS NOW SOLD OUT. However, if you'd like to be put on the waiting list or register interest for another similar course please email: info@aliburns.co.uk

4pm Friday 29th September to 4pm Monday 2nd October 2017

Between them Ali Burns and Helen Chadwick have a wealth of experience of creating profound and beautiful songs from the simplest of ideas: for theatre, installations, choirs and solo performance. In this intensive workshop they will share that experience and bring new ideas to creating and crafting songs for choirs and solo singers or performers.

Each day the group will spend time exploring components of song: writing lyrics, working with found text, crafting melody, incorporating rhythm and harmony and looking at form and genre.  The course is aimed at those with some experience of songwriting or song leading.  It is not necessary to read music to take part but participants are responsible for capturing / recording their own ideas.

The workshop will be held at the beautiful and remote venue Hill Cottage Retreat Centre, located in the Marches of mid-Wales, near Knighton in Powys.  Set in ten acres of land it includes an independent market garden, young orchard and woodland, natural swimming pond, gardens for contemplation and wildflower pastures bordered by a meandering brook.

The accommodation is made up of simple Scandinavian-style cabins with a choice of sharing a twin room (£250 per person) or single room (£280 per person). There is also an option to join in as a non-residential participant (£180 per person) - this price includes all meals but not sleeping accommodation.  If you would like to negotiate a working place price, please talk to us!

To book a place please send a non–returnable deposit of £40.  The balance must be paid by 15th September 2017.
