Every morning you wiill wake up to a delicious continental breakfast.
We start each day with lots of songwriting inspiration:
Unique and fun writing-exercises.
How to generate original lyrics, new ideas, themes and angles.
Efficient ways of working as an artist.
How to battle your inner critical voice in order to enjoy your songwriting journey and improve much faster.
You will learn about the different kinds of song structures to enable you to make your message as strong as possible. We will work with hooks, contrasts and surprises in a song - to keep the listener’s attention.
Focus is on creating authentic songs that will move your audience in the most powerful way.
The week will consist of partial co-writing and partial solo-writing, depending on number of the group and wishes.
After the exercises you will begin writing new songs.
12:30 p.m. A Fresh Homemade local Lunch.
After lunch you continue writing. Annette and Andy will offer coaching and advice along the way if you wish.
At the end of the day, you will get valuable concrete feedback on your new song. Furthermore you can draw from
Alan's and Andy’s long and wide experience with any questions you might have about how to bring your music out into the world; where and how to pitch your songs; publishing; touring; competitions; advice on the recording process; releasing; PR and much more.
DINNER at 7:00 p.m. Delicious homemade Andalusian food made by our local cook including wine.
THE EVENINGS are free to enjoy a swim in the pool, take a stroll on the beach and play songs for each other. You will certainly do a lot of laughing, be moved by the music and be greatly inspired by your teachers as well as all your fellow songwriters.
Remember also to take a break during the day, whenever you and your collaborator need some sun, sea and time off.
Take a dip in our private swimming pool, relax in the garden or play a game of tennis on our own court.
After a good breakfast we depart for the airport.
