July IBMA Webinar: How to Co-Write Songs (and Still Remain Friends)

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Becky Buller and Mark BrinkmanBluegrass songwriters Becky Buller and Mark 'Brink' Brinkman will co-host the International Bluegrass Music Association's (IBMA) July educational webinar Thursday, July 11th at 6 pm Central time. It takes two to tango, right? Well, sometimes it takes two to write a really great song. Maybe you’ve tried before and found yourself at odds with your co-writer, or maybe you and your other half think you’re the next Bernie Taupin and Elton John (of the bluegrass world, of course) and need the some expert advice on what to do next.

With years of successful solo and collaborative songwriting experience between the both of them, Becky Buller and Mark “Brink” Brinkman will dive into this topic head first. They’ll explore such topics as:

  • Setting the ground rules
  • The first writing session (how to fight fair)
  • Brainstorming ideas
  • Tapping into images and emotions
  • Synergy: Two heads are better than one
  • Forms of co-writing
  • Demos & Pitching

They will also be fielding your questions, and playing a song they co-wrote together. You don’t want to miss this chance to be this bluegrass generation's next Pete Goble and Leroy Drumm! To register, email with your request, or call (615)256-3222. Space is limited, so register early.
