Do you like to write songs and wonder what they would sound like with a band? Come to this workshop and learn how to create an arrangement of your song with an acoustic trio and go home with a recording of Michaela's band playing your tune. It's okay if your song isn't finished yet, bring what you have. In the workshop we will discuss song form, rhyming patterns, chord structures, and things to consider when playing a new song with a band. We will work with you to create a simple arrangement of your song considering bass, guitar, piano and drums/percussion in a way that you can continue to do this on your own!
