About the Song Coaching Sessions:

Each attendee will receive a confirmation email requesting submission of three (3) songs to be sent in via email no later than January 17th.

These will be forwarded to the coaches you are assigned to for their review. We will need to submit a simple .mp3 recording and a lyric sheet in Word, Pages, or .pdf form we will print for you at the event. NO LIVE PERFORMANCES for the coaching session.

Songs not submitted by the deadline will not be critiqued. Demos may be very simple guitar or piano and voice recordings or whatever you’ve got that adequately demonstrates your melody and lyric. Don’t sweat this – we’re listening for the quality of the song, NOT the quality of the demo.

John Chisum coaches singer-songwriters Drake & Lucy-Jayne Lanier (Drakeford).
