It was Remembrance Day in Canada, and we humbly met with our freedoms at hand to share our original songs. Next meeting’s optional assignment is likely going to be: write and present a song that sounds like it could have come out of the 1960s. Welcome to first-time attendee Ella Frank, and re-welcome to long-hiatus attendee Paul Gallagher.
Here we were! The (optional) assignment for October was to write and present a song based on any book title. The upcoming (optional) assignment for November is to go for a walk with your phone – then at some point during your walk, sing or hum something or say some words to subsequently base a song on. Hope to see you then; all are welcome (Fri Nov 11; 7:30PM)! Message us here for an invite if you’re a first-timer.
Well we missed that “attention to detail” over the last few months (by forgetting to post here with photos), but we definitely had songwriting meetings in all of July / August / September! Hopefully as of October 2022, you’ll see more consistent updates. See the October 2022 (optional) writing assignment. If you’ve never joined us before, feel free to reach out and ask for an invite; all are welcome.
We missed posting pics of our virtual meetings from January / March / April 2022! See the happy faces!
Our assignment for this month was to write and present songs that had anything to do with senses.
For January, write and present songs that have unreliable narrators.
Next month’s optional assignment: Write and present songs that have anything to do with the five human senses.
We are posing.
Our (usual) group shot at our (usual) monthly meeting. The assignment for this month had two options: Write and present a song that had anything to do with a made-up word, or a song that had a non-4/4 time signature within. Next month’s assignment is to write and present a song that has anything to do with clothing or apparel.
Songwriters tired (the day after the Raptors’ NBA title win), but enthusiastic. The assignment for each member was to write and present a song that had anything to do with “vision” or the lack thereof. We’re missing three members from this photo (welcome to first-time attendee Crystal). Next month’s assignment: Two options: Write and present a song that includes a word that you made up, or that includes a non-4/4 time signature for at least part of the song.
Do all songwriters have glasses? They did at this meeting. The assignment for the month was to write and present a song that had anything to do with “green.”
