October 2017 Meeting


The assignment for the month was to write and present a song that was from the perspective of a child. Welcome to first-time attendee Linda. Next month’s assignment will be at a member’s home in Etobicoke on Friday Nov 10. Message us for the exact location.

June 2017 Meeting


The songwriting assignment this month for each of us was to write and present a song that had anything to do with random videos we were given. Success! Hosted for the first time at a new location (a member’s home, as usual).

May 2017 Meeting


The optional assignment for our group this month was to write and present a song that had anything to do with science fiction. Nanu Nanu. And welcome to first-time attendee Jacqueline. Hopefully your name is spelled correctly. 🙂

Next meeting will be on Friday June 9th near the Danforth / Pape area in Toronto at a member’s home. Message our group for the actual address and for the optional songwriting assignment. You don’t have to write a song — you can play any song that you’d like constructive feedback on. And of course, you can just show up and listen! It’s quite magical seeing a bunch of humans share their original art in a supportive environment.

March 2017 Meeting


This month’s assignment was for each of us to try to write and present a song that had anything to do with a product: a real one or a fake one.

Assignments are shared well ahead of the meetings so everybody has time to create. Membership is free and open to anybody. The membership hashtag for the month is: #SeekingFewerWhiteMales

The next meeting will be on Thursday evening April 13, 2017 at a member’s home in the Etobicoke area. To join, even as a spectator, contact us through this website, or through the Toronto Songwriters Google Group, or message us on the Facebook Page.

February 2017 Meeting

‘Twas a small meeting this month. A combo of terrible weather, colds (and maybe the song assignment?) kept folks away. The four of us made the best of it, however — each presenting a new song based on the idea of “no emotion.”

November 2016 Meeting


Since our scheduled meeting (the 2nd Friday of every month) fell on November 11 this year, the assignment was to write and present a song that had something to do with Remembrance Day. Most of the attendees did so, and there was lots of great constructive feedback and praise for the results. Welcome to first-time attendees Nicholas, Jayne and John.
