WHAT IS BIRDSONGWRITING?
Birdsongwriting is a process I developed of creating new music collaboratively with the natural birdsong we hear in the environment. Participants will be asked to listen deeply, meditate, vocalize, move their bodies, use found natural objects as instruments, and perform their new work. Everyone will leave having written at least one song!
We will work both indoors and outdoors, and the only materials required are a pen, paper, and a willingness to try new things. Like all of my songwriting workshops (bird and non-bird), this program is for experienced and non-experienced music makers alike.

These are FAQs for my standard (aka non-bird) songwriting workshops, but feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any further questions.
HOW TO GET THERE
If you've never been to Governors Island, it's a magical place that's just a quick ferry ride from lower Manhattan. Come early to spend the day, explore, and get inspired!
The Audubon Society has their residency in Nolan Park.
When you get off the ferry, go up the hill and turn LEFT at the fork! Follow the signs for Nolan Park, and the Audubon House is #17, on your right.

See you there!
