I had an amazing experience. I had a lot going on in my head at the time, that combined with the techniques they teach you to unfold an idea made it easy to put my thoughts on paper. It was a very pleasant afternoon and we got to know each other in the process. I would recommend this as a way to walk through your mind and spill out whatever you've been feeling recently.

Thanks to this experience I found out that with some professional guidance and friendly encouragement I can be creative in ways that I would have never thought before. We wrote a whole song from scratch, recorded it and left home feeling like the world is our oyster. Furthermore, the steps we learned can be applied to any creative process in the future. We learned a new skill, had lots of fun while doing it and left happy and empowered - I would recommend this experience to everyone.

Sam and James were lovely. I was coming from a flight the day before and they were very helpful in accommodating my schedule, letting me book later. I have always struggled with getting my ideas onto paper and their instruction helped me finally learn a structure I can use to write any song. If you are someone who is interested in learning new techniques to expand your creativity, or just learn an interesting new skill so you can sing your original song around the campfire, I cannot recommend them enough! I had a blast.

Sam ist eine inspirierende Frau, die mir die ganze Zeit vermittelte, dass ich ein kreativer Mensch bin. Unter ihrer Anleitung gab es keine Scham, stattdessen viel Spaß. Und ja, tatsächlich: am Ende hatte ich einen eigenen Song geschrieben! Wow! Der erste in meinem Leben. Darüber hinaus habe ich ein paar Kreativtechniken kennengelernt, die ich auch anderweitig nutzen kann.

The Workshop is really recommendable even when you have no clue of music/songwriting. You learn techniques which you can use in so many areas and use at your own! Great experience thank you.

Attended this workshop with a friend. Had a wonderful time with Sam & James, learned a lot, my writing creativity was boosted and got it back and in the end we made a song which I did not expect at all but it happened and made me believe that just anything is possible. Thank you very much for such a wonderful experience! Jan loved it as well and is very happy with his song! Would definitely do it again and highly recommend everyone to have this unique experience!
