February Meeting Recap
If you didn’t make it to the Feb. 2 meeting, you missed a good one. Members showcased songs including all kinds of bridges, or no bridge, and explored when a song may need one and when it doesn’t. Pianist and songwriter Jessica Saenz (firstname.lastname@example.org) ended the meeting, and began the open stage, with a brilliant set of well-crafted, well-performed songs.
Featured performer: Meet Pittsburgh Songwriters Circle newcomer Caiden Droscha (email@example.com).
Optional songwriting assignment: Write a waltz — a great suggestion by Howard Davidson (firstname.lastname@example.org). The musical structure of a song communicates unspoken nuances. What will telling your story in a waltz form suggest about your topic?
