There are many ticking parts in getting a song to work. Melodies, rhythms, chords, and lyrics... Which chords will work? What notes will work? In this interactive workshop we can look at a tune you have written, or are working on, and we'll take a look at what works or . . . doesn't! Learn about songwriting techniques to get you out of a rut, or to perhaps inspire new ideas. There is no right or wrong answer here.
All levels welcomed.
Victoria Vox is an award-winning songwriter and performer. Originally from Green Bay, WI, Vox has lived in France, England, Nashville, Baltimore, and now resides in Costa Mesa, CA.
Vox is an ukulele-toting award-winning songwriter and performer. With a passion for songwriting since she was 10 (first on keyboard, then on guitar), she studied at the Berklee College of Music (Boston, MA) and in 2003, she took up the ukulele as her main accompaniment. Since the release of her first ukulele album in 2006 (… and her Jumping Flea), Vox has been one of the leading songwriters on the ukulele scene (Ukulele Magazine, front cover + feature article). However, she straddles into the folk scene as well, where she has opened for Jackson Browne, Tom Chapin, Leo Kottke, and Cheryl Wheeler. She performs mostly as a one-woman-band, incorporating a loop pedal and bass effect on her uke while taking her own solos (on mouth-trumpet), and cutting through it all with her genuine lyrics and pure voice.
