On this songwriting week Boo and Darden will work with you on your songwriting skills. Meter, melody, lyrics, chords…. every aspect of song. Let us give you the tools to allow your inspiration to be realised. But why What Next? It is important to us what you take with you from the week. In recent years attendees to Boo’s courses have gone on to wonderful things. Albums have been made, tours toured, songs covered. In one-to-ones we will help you realise any ambitions you have for your writing. Experience has shown us that giving a writer a sense of focus can be transformative.

“The master songwriter turns some of his best material on himself.”  The Word (Boo Hewerdine)
