Songwriter’s Toolbox, hosted by Kevin Dudley
4th Saturday of each month, 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Surge, located at 1988 Kirby Rd., McLean, VA, 22101.

Come to the Songwriter’s Toolbox on the 4th Saturday morning (10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.) of each month and learn more about songwriting! Attendance is FREE, although we will pass a “tip jar” around to honor our guest artist for coming. Everyone is welcome, so bring a friend.

Saturday, September 27, join us at our new location, Surge, in McLean, Virginia, as we welcome guest artist and local sensation, singer/songwriter Jessica Yellowitz. Jessica is a Junior at Woodson High School and has been performing since she was six, locally and in Nashville… including Bluebird Café. She sings and writes way beyond her years and has much to discuss regarding performing, lyrics and creativity.

The second half of the session we’ll conduct a critique session so bring a song, make sure you bring at least 20 lyric sheets and your instrument of choice.

Hope to see you there.

The Songwriter’s Toolbox is like a mini-workshop, which includes learning from our guest artist and then getting constructive feedback for one of your songs. If you don’t have a song to share, you can still learn a lot by listening to a variety of songs written by your fellow songwriters and the suggestions for improving that song. If you’d like to bring a song you're working on or one that's finished, bring your instrument and at least 20 lyric sheets. We encourage everyone to write down their comments on them so that later, you can see your lyric sheets annotated with lots of good suggestions.
