WELCOME TO THE HVWC CALENDAR: home of all our upcoming readings, events and workshops. You can view by list or calendar (see right menu to choose). Click the colored tabs below to show only specific options. Our workshops run as multi-session series or one-day “intensives.” Note, we list the multi-session courses on the first day they meet only. The full dates of the session are described in the course descriptions. You would need to scroll back to the start date if you needed to enroll for something already underway. But do let us know if you want to join something in midstream since we need the blessing of the instructor. Questions? Email us.

The Art & Craft of Songwriting with Nina Ossoff (via Zoom)

January 18, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Participants will learn the song structures, lyric/melodic tools, writing for specific genres and will be given weekly assignments to bring in songs on different themes. We will also listen to great songs and analyze them to see what makes them great and how to use that knowledge to best become a better songwriter.

A minimum four students is needed to run the class, and a maximum class size is 15 students. Registration is $320 for the series, which will be taught via Zoom. The Zoom link will be emailed at the time of registration as well as the day before class.  Please write to [email protected] with questions.
