NSAI’s Songposium Week 2006

The Nashville Songwriters Association International will be hosting their 2nd annual Songposium Week from September 22-30 in Nashville. The dates correspond quite nicely for any bluegrass songwriters who may be attending the IBMA World Of Bluegrass trade show and convention, which runs from September 25-30, and may wish to take advantage of what the NSAI offers as well.

Songposium involves a songwriting camp that runs 9/22-24, a week’s worth of classes on a variety of topics, and 6 nights of concerts and songwriter showcases at The Bluebird Caf???.

Classes are offered by a wide variety of successful songwriters, publishers, and other music industry pros, and NSAI suggests that the networking opportunities may be as valuable to participants as any of the actual information you can obtain. Opportunities will exist to have your music critiqued, and to attend panel discussions on the many legal and professional questions songwriters face in today’s changing music business.

Despite the location in Nashville, NSAI does not have a stated stylistic focus, and welcomes members who write songs without regard to genre or professional status. The various Songposium events will occur at a number of different venues in Nashville, including Belmont University.

Visit the NSAI site for more details and registration information.
