Songwriting Workshops, Retreats & Coaching

If you’re looking for a place to add to your skill set, expand your music or songwriting career, or just find people who love what you love doing – then yes – a workshop or retreat would be for you!

And, if you’re a singer-songwriter, there are quite a few songwriting retreats with award-winning songwriters who live in or  frequent Texas. Plus Texas boasts one of the longest lists of CMA and grammy-winning songwriters in the country!

I’ve listed a couple of songwriting coaches I’d recommend.  Both have had #1 hits and can help you meet your songwriting goals in a positive, encouraging environment.
