Whether you are an absolute beginner, not knowing where to start, someone who has some experience writing but wants to take it to the next level, or a gigging musician that’s stuck and needs a new way through the creative block, this course will give you the BOOST you need. EP’s strengths are both skill based & creative. In this workshop, we will address practical ideas, tools & tricks to help you initiate, develop and follow through with: melody, harmony, lyrics & rhythm. Create practical strategies to grow your toolbox, connect to new sources of inspiration, align with your deeper self & have fun doing it.
