Studio Singing for The Songwriter presented by Victoria Venier.  Victoria will teach you not only the basics of vocal technique, but also what makes studio singing so much different than live singing. Additionally, you will learn how to get the most out of your demo vocal. If you want to raise the bar on your craft, this seminar is a must.

How To Make Good Songs Great presented by Sandy Ramos, The Songtuner.  Ever wonder why some songs get taken by publishers & song pluggers and other songs don’t?  This workshop will break down your songs into 4 areas:  Hook, Lyric, Idea, and Melody.  What works ~ what doesn’t?  Sandy will teach you how to take a good song to the next level and make it great
