Part of becoming a better songwriter and musician is making great music with others — SummerSongs West (June 3-7 in Cambria, CA) is thrilled to welcome Nathan Aswell to our teaching roster this year, where he’ll be teaching a class called “Play Well with Others” and another “Chart Writing 101.” Both classes will get you playing with other musicians easily and joyfully in no time!
Here’s what Nathen has to say about his SummerSongs West classes:
Q: Why do you think it is important for musicians and songwriters to learn how to play together as opposed to just being a solo artist?
Nathen Aswell is a gifted speaker, recording artist, coach and podcaster based in Vancouver, BC, Canada, and he believes that his calling in this life is to inspire and heal through his talks and his heart-centered music-making.
SummerSongs, founded by singer-songwriter Penny Nichols in 1999, offers seasonal songwriting camps (summer and winter) for adults on both the East and West coasts of the United States. The songwriting camps take place in the Hudson River Valley 30 miles north of New York City; and on the beautiful California Central Coast, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Both locations are perfect havens for songwriting and creative inspiration.
