Songwriting workshops & seminars

"I think that the material that is meaningful in the long run, that has the greatest impact on people, is the material that avoids cliches. And it avoids picking a subject and abstractly filling in the lyrics for it without having any emotional impact behind it, without having any real feeling for the subject matter . . . To think up a unique subject is not enough. You still have to put it in some relevant human context."
- Todd Rundgren (from an interview – Songwriters on Songwriting)
