Songwriting 101: A Workshop with Darryl Baser

Darryl Baser hosts a songwriting 101 workshop at the Dunedin Public Library for all comers of all abilities. Darryl believes pretty much anyone can express themselves through songwriting. At 51 Darryl has been a songwriter since age 20.
The session is planned for 60 to 90 minutes. Darryl will explain his process, and encourage attendees to be vulnerable in a safe non-judgemental space. Bring your ideas and leave your fear behind.
