Based in Nashville, Janis Ian has been a professional singer-songwriter since the age of twelve. She has released 22 major label albums that have sold over 9 million copies worldwide. The recipient of two Grammy Awards and nine Grammy nominations, she has also received honors from a host of organizations, including the Human Rights Campaign Fund and MADD.

This two-hour workshop will include songwriting information and demonstrations, personal anecdotes and a "no holds barred" Q&A session. Janis will talk about lyrics, melody, harmony, chord progressions and song structures, with an emphasis on "how to be the best at songwriting". She will also discuss ways to nurture creativity and demonstrate techniques for effective stage presence and "stagecraft".
