NSAI ANNOUNCES SPRING SYMPOSIUM

The week of April 16-20 will be a busy time in Nashville for songwriters, with NSAI hosting Tin Pan South and Spring Symposium '96, two of the year's premier events.

Tin Pan South, a festival of concerts and showcases by top artists and songwriters in the fields of country and pop, will kick off on April 16 and run through April 20. A number of exciting events are planned, including the Tin Pan Jam, nightly songwriter showcases, and the Legendary Songwriters Acoustic Concert with Randy Goodrum ("You Needed Me"), Michael Masser ("Saving All My Love For You"), Allen Toussaint ("Southern Nights") and more.

Following Tin Pan South is Spring Symposium '96, a seminar designed to help participants boost their songwriting careers. In addition to a series of workshops on song craft and marketing,, each participant will have a chance to play a song for a Nashville publisher in a one-on-one meeting! In addition, participants will have a song evaluation by a Nashville hit songwriter.

Best-selling author Julia Cameron (The Artist's Way) will be a guest speaker, and will lead a program to stimulate creativity and to overcome a variety of career and creative blocks such as self-doubt, fear of rejection, jealously, guilt, and addiction. In addition, hit songwriter Skip Ewing ("Rebecca Lynn", "Love, Me") will lead a series of songwriting exercises to help participants hone their craft.

From April 14-16, NSAI will present Song Camp 101 in Nashville. Song Camp is a unique opportunity to study the craft of songwriting from some of the masters in a three-day intensive retreat. Call (615)256-3354 for info.
