The workshop will run from 10.30 until 4pm. Part A from 10.30am – 1:30pm (including a 15 minute break) will be led by songwriter Chris Gibbons http://www.chrisgibbonsmusic.co.uk and explore the song-writing process which incorporates melody and lyric writing. After an hour break for lunch Part B will run between 2.00pm - 4.00pm. This session will provide a focus on the role of the music publisher and just as important the copyright issues surrounding the participants’ compositions(s) and will be facilitated by Jacqui Norton (Director) http://www.parkstmusic.com, who has a professional background in music publishing, copyright and practical experience in lecturing at various universities and facilitating workshops of this kind to young people, vulnerable prisoners and young offenders. Each participant will receive an educational folder which will contain music industry information. This project will be a valuable contribution to people who are socially excluded and will aim to enhance, expand and utilise existing skills and introduce them to networking opportunities. As song-writing also includes the art of lyric writing, this project may also provide the opportunity for people from different areas of the arts to work together, for example, people with an interest in creative writing will be encouraged to collaborate their poetry and writing skills with the songwriters and musicians who are also participating in the workshop; providing innovative ideas with new skills and collaborative work.
