You are invited to join Emilia for this two hour long session and to discuss the different approaches to song writing and how one might find inspiration for writing songs. She will share some of her own methods and sources of inspiration and use of songs from her last two albums as examples where the main focus was to blur the lines between genres and mix influences from traditional folk music, jazz and alternative pop.
The workshop will also offer you the opportunity to get feedback on your own compositions so go along with your instrument and have your songs ready to share!
