SONG CLUB Wednesday December 19th

Join the Collective Song Club at our next session December 19th!!!

The Collective Song Club meets from 5:30-8:30PM at our new studio location, Music Works NYC, 215 West 91 St. (DeSoto Building) just off of Broadway on the basement level. This doorman building is easily accessible via the 1/2/3 and C subway lines.

The goal of the Collective Song Club is to create a nurturing space for songwriters, artists and producers to present their works in progress, completed songs and productions as well as ask questions about the music business. The studio has guitars and a keyboard available so no need to feel you have to bring your own. The studio can playback a CD, your iPhone or Android, MP3 player, or connect via the internet to your website or Dropbox. Bring a few lyric sheets of the song you would like to share. Once again there will be a guitar and a keyboard available in a recording studio setting.


We will continue the Song Club every two weeks on Wednesday evenings. Drop in at anytime up until 7:30pm during each session. $25 at the door and we accept debit/credit cards onsite.
