Steve Seskin Seminar

by Craig Lackey

Back by popular demand, the NSAI Los Angeles Regional Workshop is proud to present an all-day hit songwriting seminar with Steve Seskin. Steve won the 1998 CMA Song of the Year award for “Don’t Laugh at Me” (recorded by Mark Wills), and has had many other top hits such as “Life’s a Dance” (John Michael Montgomery), “Daddy’s Money” (Ricochet), and “I Think About You” (Collin Raye).  Steve has co-written over 400 songs with such writers as Gary Burr, John Bonjovi, Allen Shamblin, and Pam Tillis.

Come hear Steve share his extensive knowledge about the craft and business of songwriting. In particular, Steve will talk about how to write your songs in the most powerful way possible using first, second, and third person points of view. He will also discuss the process of rewriting, including the ever elusive question of how to know when you’re done.
 In addition, Steve will do song evaluations. Priority will be given to the first 20 people who sign up. The order will be determined based on when payment is received.

The seminar will be held on Saturday, December 11 from 9:30AM to 5:00PM at The Musician’s Institute, 1655 McCadden Place in Hollywood. Admission is $35 for NSAI members and $40 for non-members when paid in advance. The cost will be $45 at the door. To register, send your payment to 5835 St. Clair Ave., Valley Village, CA 91607. Checks must be made out to Vickie Vining.  Be sure to include your phone number.

Following the workshop, there will be a concert featuring Steve Seskin and hit writer Steve Dorff (“I Cross My Heart”) and friends at Hallenbeck’s General Store, 5510 N. Cahuenga Blvd. in North Hollywood, starting at 8:00PM.  Admission to the concert is free to workshop participants, and $10 for all others.
