We had a nice turnout at the November 12, 2017 meeting on Sunday with 17 people in attendance and 14 songs submitted for critiquing. We want to thank everyone for spending their Sunday afternoon with us.
We would also like to extend a warm welcome to our newest HSA members, Craig Edel and A.J. Gillard, for joining our organization.
A special thanks goes out to Buddy Trotter for presenting a very interesting November Mini Workshop titled “Song Forms”, a Chapter from Pat Pattison’s Book, “Writing Better Lyrics”.
