All access to lecture recordings, songwriting prompts and all course materials for Erin Birgy's (Mega Bog) songwriting workshop taught in July 2022. By purchasing this past course, you're able to watch Erin's lectures and go about the course at your own pace!

    This course also includes songwriting prompts from Erin such as "Results of your environment", "Creation, Reflection, Revision, and Elaboration", and "Metamorphoses".


    Here's a quote from Erin on the class...

    " In this course we’ll work together to explore the infinite paths and foundations we resonate with and incorporate into our songwriting practice. My hope is that this space can be a poet’s playground, where we mourn and rejoice in the capture of melodies, words.. Identify structure of documentation that root us in our practice, simultaneously letting go of the work we put into the practice with an understanding of presence and nothingness, play and release. This class can be a space to explore concepts of metamorphosis along the spectrum of practical discipline, new values, playfulness, curiosity and how we can fully embody the stages we experience in our everyday practice as songwriters." - Erin Birgy


    -- Testimonials from July 2022 students --

    " Thank you so much, Erin! You are such an eloquent speaker and I am so grateful that I got to take a peak at your songwriting process and experience it for myself! It is so different than the way I approach songwriting (although with some similarities ;). It has been so eye opening and enriching and I am so glad I decided to come along for the ride."

    " Erin! Thanks for the course! It pushed me and made me think about my approach to songwriting in a completely different way. I'm going to be reflecting on that Nietzsche essay for a long time. Be well!"


    This "Past Course" includes:

    1. Class Video Recordings – Watch all 5 of Erin Birgy's lectures + Q&A's on her songwriting process.
    2. All course materials, including songwriting prompts crafted by Erin.
    3. Access to the "community jukebox" – upload your new songs to the jukebox and share the tunes with fellow classmates!


    Q: What musical experience is required to understand the material in this course?

    A: People across all musical levels will be able to gain something from the course. However, it will be helpful to be comfortable playing a few basic chords on any instrument of your choice in order to complete the songwriting prompts.

    Q: What if I’ve never written a song before? Can I still participate in this workshop?

    A: Yes! As with any new skill, just starting is usually the hardest part. This workshop will provide the structure and accountability we all need to get started and follow through, for beginners and old guard writers alike.

    Q: What is different about watching this past course versus participating while the workshop is run live?

    A: By purchasing this course, you'll have access to the same resources as the students who took the course while it was running other than the live songshares.
