The ASCAP Nashville membership team hosted workshops last week for its members.
The annual ASCAP Foundation Country Workshop, in honor of Garth Brooks, took place on Nov. 13 and 14. Designed to support the development and education of up-and-coming songwriters, the two-session, virtual event was led by chart-topping country music songwriter Corey Crowder.
Hailing from Canada to Los Angeles and everywhere in-between, 12 country music songwriters were selected to participate in this unique intensive that focused on the craft of songwriting, song structure, exploring creative collaboration and an overview of the music industry.
The ASCAP Nashville team also hosted the virtual ASCAP Foundation Christian Music Songwriters Workshop on Nov. 13. Now in its 14th year, the workshop brought together 11 up-and-coming Christian music songwriters and was led by 2023 ASCAP Christian Music Song of the Year Award winner, songwriter and producer David Spencer.
The session covered demo production, current songwriting trends on Christian radio, the art of collaboration, and songwriting and production to help take songs to the next level. Each attendee played a song for the group, and Spencer gave insightful feedback on potential revisions for each song.
