Welcome to the Challenge – January 2012
This is an introduction video for the Songwriters Circle January Challenge which started on January 2nd 2011 and lasts for one month with a goal of writing at least one new song.
My name is Andy Roberts and I’d like to welcome you all, experienced songwriters and beginners alike, even if you have never written one song but would like to try then the Songwriters Circle is a great place to start and the the January Challenge is the perfect time to join.
All you need is a pen and paper and a computer or device with internet access.
The way the challenge will work is that there will be a daily lesson or task that should take no longer than about half an hour to work through or listen to. That all, just thirty minutes a day and then at the end of the process you will have a song to call your own that you are happy with, possibly after writing and discarding a few more half finished songs than that.
Happy New Year everybody!
Below is the link to the youTube video recorded for the introduction to the January Challenge back in 2011, it’s based on the old version of the site, but the general drift is still valid.
In just thirty days time a small group of people will have written and completed at least one song each – how amazing is that.
By the way I should also say that if you are reading this and it’s already half way through January or something like that, don’t worry it’s not too late. You could still catch up and complete the challenge by the end of the month if you just put in a little extra time each day. You could probably cover three or for days worth in just one hour every day until you are all up to date.
The January Challenge is closed to new applicants now, but you can - ENROLL NOW for the March 2012 or later cohorts.
