Charting: Make Your Own Songbook

March 16, 2019. Saturday, 1-3 PM. $30. Register for “Charting” here.
Location: Artichoke Community Music, Portland, OR 97202

There are songs galore in books and online, but perhaps not formatted to your liking, or confusing to follow as written. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to organize a song on paper with verses, choruses, lyrics, chords, and more, so you can create your own custom songbooks. All chording instruments welcome! Email avery@learnsongbysong.com with any questions or concerns.

Transposing: Find Your Key

April 27, 2019. Saturday, 1-3 PM. $30. Register for “Transposing” here.
Location: Artichoke Community Music, Portland, OR 97202

For those who love to sing along as they strum from songbooks or online, but find all too often their voices strained too high or low, or a string of difficult chords a bit beyond their reach. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to break down the chord pattern of a song in such a way that you can shift things around in order to play chords and sing melodies better suited to your talents. Or just to avoid playing bar chords a little while longer … All chording instruments welcome! Email avery@learnsongbysong.com with any questions or concerns.

Arranging: Make It Your Own

May 18, 2019. Saturday, 1-3 PM. $30. Register for “Arranging” here.
Location: Artichoke Community Music, Portland, OR 97202

For those who completed Intro to Transposing or who have basic knowledge of the common I-IV-V chord families. This workshop dives a little deeper into the world of transposing, introducing more chord types and keys to transpose into. All chording instruments welcome!
