I've attended songwriting workshops before, but not anything related to this specifically.

I have attended several workshops of this style - I posted this particular workshop because I worked with Jodie and Rodney at ECMA events in years past. I think it should be a decent event from an educational perspective, and could potentially be a good networking opportunity - I doubt there will be a huge turnout, which means some solid Q and A time for those that attend. Here are a couple of links that should give you a little more background on the people involved:

I find it interesting to hear other people's approaches to things. Songwriting is a good one.

I'm a drummer. As far as I'm concerned, songs just get in the way of drum solos.
