This workshop series with Nicole Berke will provide a space for music-loving, creative individuals of all levels to come together and work on their craft. Each month will introduce a different theme. April’s focus will be song arrangement, or how to make a cover sound original. Coming up in May, we’ll tackle the art of writing lyrics, and in June, we’ll dive into musical theory and composition for songwriting. In an exciting and supportive way, you’ll improve upon your skills, get inspired with new ideas, and engage with other like-minded people in the Resound NW musical community! Read more -->
