Free Songwriting Workshop: Friday, April 1st


Can't wait to start recording with you...

So, I hear you’ve got unfinished business…

This workshop will help you understand WHY you’re not finishing your songs and provide you with the tools to know HOW to work with all your unfinished material.

You’ll leave with new techniques to spark creativity, fresh ideas for what to do when you’re stuck, and newfound confidence as you re-approach your half-finished tunes. We want you to look forward to making music and feel the satisfaction of completing your projects.

Come join us for this 1-hour workshop! Bring any questions, hesitations, or particular circumstances you might have that have been keeping you from taking this next big step in your musical journey. We’ve all been there and can’t wait to help you progress!


What if I’m afraid to show what i don’t know?

– Hey, this workshop is a safe space. You won’t be asked to share anything you don’t want to and we’re all in this together! You can safely bet that there will be others in the same boat as you. There are zero expectations or prerequisites coming into this 1-hour workshop. We are here to meet you where you’re at and help you grow and feel more comfortable.

I have, like, a lot of unfinished songs. Like, a LOT. Okay- all of of my songs are unfinished. Help?

–  Hey we’ve been there. No, really! We have! And when I say we, I don’t mean the royal we. I mean multiple REAL people here at golden lotus studio. Firstly, it’s natural, so don’t sweat it. Secondly, we can’t wait to help you finish your first one or your next one! Woohoo!

What if I finish a song… and I don’t like it? That terrifies me and might be why I don’t finish them.

– What if I told you that “done is better than perfect”? Or that “art is never finished, only abandoned”? Or maybe “your [killer] taste is why your work disappoints you”? Or “I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain”?

Sorry, got a lil’ existential there towards the end. A few of those are relevant, right?! What about “the only thing we have to fear is…fear itself”?
