ASCAP Nashville Hosts Christian Music Songwriters Workshop
The ASCAP Nashville membership team virtually hosted The ASCAP Foundation Christian Music Songwriters Workshop on Dec. 8-9.
Now in its 13th year, the workshop included 15 up-and-coming Christian songwriters led by award-winning ASCAP songwriter, motivator, and facilitator Jason Houser. The two sessions covered navigating creative life, developing a unique voice as a songwriter, writing with courage, and more. Each attendee played a song for the group, and Houser gave insightful feedback on potential revisions for each song.
“We had an incredible group of songwriters–from New York to California–for The ASCAP Foundation Christian Music Songwriters Workshop. It’s so important for us as creatives to collaborate and receive coaching in order to grow in our craft,” Houser shares. “In my opinion, ASCAP is the best PRO–this is just one example of how they provide meaningful growth opportunities for their members.”
