A renowned writer of many hits for other artists as well as herself, Beth Nielsen Chapman is in demand as a songwriting teacher and creative coach, having taught at such schools as the Royal Scottish Academy of Music & Drama, the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts and Berklee School of Music in Boston, and numerous festivals and venues internationally.

Beth presents her unique and inspiring style of teaching in much the same way she approaches writing itself.  For any writer in need of a boost of creative energy, this journey into the workings of the creative flow will cover some great tips and advice on how to step fully into your center and find your voice, in writing and singing as well as keeping your balance in the performance of your songs.

Beth intersperses songs, stories and insights using great pro-active tangible exercises, the students learn ways to access and trust intuition, work with fear (it’s along for the ride) and move the brain/ego aside to allow the most creative oxygen in. “After that first draft it’s time to roll up our sleeves and put the brain to work analyzing and editing your work into it’s finished perfection. It’s essential to embrace the art of balancing the craft with the inspiration. If the heart and body and breath of great writing come from the soul, then you can thank the brain for help with the clothes, shoes, and matching handbag.”

You’ll experience some valuable insights on how to maximize the whole spectrum of what you can bring to your writing after a BNC workshop!
