Singer Songwriter Meet Up with Juliana Finch

September 9, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Has spending more time at home made you finally pick up that dusty guitar you bought on a whim six years ago? Have you recently been inspired to start expressing yourself through songs but aren’t quite sure how to start? Or have you been writing for awhile on your own and want to meet other folks who share your interest?
Please join us on August 12th for the first in our series of Beginning Songwriter meetups! Join Arcana’s Patreon at any level for the link:
This group will be a combination of songwriting workshop and a supportive environment for sharing new work and getting to know other songwriters. We’ll be introducing some key concepts around process, song structure, lyric writing, and where to get inspiration for new songs. Each month, we’ll have a writing prompt to work on for the next meeting (sharing your work will be optional, so please don’t worry if you’re shy about performing!)
Things you need:
A notebook and pen
An instrument (your voice counts as an instrument)
A simple way to record yourself (most phones have this capability built-in!)
Things you don’t need:
Extensive knowledge of music theory
A great singing voice
A long history of performing
For our first meeting, I encourage you to show up with curiosity and optimism and leave your worries about being “good” for another time. This is a sandbox and we plan to play.
If you have any questions before the meeting please feel free to reach out to me at [email protected]
See you soon!
Juliana Finch has spent almost two decades writing and performing songs. She has released five albums, performed at music festivals and venues all over the country, and loves having Durham – and Arcana – as her home base. Her favorite place to write is on her porch with a good cup of coffee. She can be found on social media @writeplayrepeat.
