Monthly Critique – 6/20 @ 7 pm

By admin

MSG holds its monthly song critique on Wednesday, June 20th at 7 p.m. at Noodles & Company on University Avenue. Bring a song or lyric to play live or on a CD and get instant feedback from local songwriters, and give some of your own. Incomplete, new or nearly new songs , in particular, are encouraged.

***We’ve added a new feature to the critique called the Monthly Song Challenge. In June, the challenge is aimed at those of us who procrastinate: Complete a song that you’ve started or always thought about writing but haven’t started and bring it to the critique to share. We will present a new challenge for July at June’s critique.

Check out the Events page for more details and we’ll see you there!
