Songwriter Workshop with Dan Navarro

Where: O Museum in The Mansion, 2020 O Street NW
When: 5/23 at 10am

This workshop focuses on exploring the creative process through songwriting. Attendees will work with and learn from the prolific songwriter Dan Navarro to develop new techniques and enhance existing ones. Dan will lead you through an exploration of the essence of verbal and musical expression, the dynamic of connected performance and composition and the deceptive allure of success and its various disguises.

Through collaboration exercises, critiques (if you wish), monologue and dialogue, you will run through your creative paces with positivity and support, to ideally take home concepts that will facilitate creativity — on whatever level you choose. All levels of songwriters welcome. If you have an instrument you want to use, please bring it, and bring your songs, in whatever stages they are. CD’s MP’s welcome.

Each participant will receive an autographed copy of Dan's new CD — "Shed My Skin"
