The Song


THE SONG KITCHEN is where you can go for creative, supportive help to get unstuck, to spice up your work, or to add that finishing touch to your song.

The SONG KITCHEN is about YOUR songs and YOUR song writing in the most practical way.


Pop in, the soup is on!

SONGWRITER WORKSHOPS are led by presenters who give a talk or lead participants through a hands-on song writing exercise. 

It is also a great place to meet with other songwriters, or find a musical collaborator.

Each workshop is different so check in regularly for updates.
