Meet with Arizona Songwriters Association members and hosts
Jon Iger and Randy Brown, to get constructive feedback on your song,
finished or not, BEFORE you go into the studio!
Perform it live or bring a CD or work tape.
This is a FREE opportunity and a laid back atmosphere.
Randy and Jon have taught songwriting classes at the MIM
(Musical Instrument Museum), and have had songs placed
in many movies and TV shows.
Jon has also had major label cuts on MCA and Capitol Records.

If you are bringing a song to be reviewed,
please bring extra copies of your lyric sheet (10 to 20). 

There's a better chance for more feedback when everyone
can see the lyrics.

Songs need to have driving melodies with strong,
current sounding lyrics!
Justin is Colt's bandleader,
so anything he finds will be played for Colt, personally!

Send songs by Midnight, Tuesday (9/18)!

Justin will listen to everything before the first recording session!  Colt will be going in for another recording session after this one and would love to find a male/female duet!

    Hampton Inn, 8408 West Paradise Lane, Peoria, AZ.
Nashville producer Larry Beaird of Beaird Music Group
is bringing his popular Songwriter Minute Workshop to Arizona. 
Larry Beard will concentrate on teaching songwriters what makes
a song a hit. As a Nashville record producer, arranger and studio musician,
he has researched hundreds of #1 hits to see what makes the songs work.
He will share the results of his extensive research with workshop attendees,
showing songwriters ways to make their own songs more radio friendly
in today’s competitive radio market.
A short, easy lesson on the Nashville Number System will also be
included in the workshop. 

Other songwriter topics to be included can be viewed at the website

Bonus songwriting sessions will be taught by
     Jon Iger, Randy Brown and Les Scott
      of Arizona Songwriters Association
          from 10am to 11:30am

Many songs recorded at Beaird Music Group have become #1 hits,
including two Academy of Country Music Songs of the Year –
Three Wooden Crosses by Randy Travis
and I’m Movin’ On by Rascal Flatts. 
Larry Beaird has either recorded or played on thousands of
recording sessions for major artists such as Dolly Parton,
Brooks & Dunn, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, and Montgomery Gentry.
Numerous songwriter demos recorded at his studio have
resulted in hit songs by major artists such as Carrie Underwood,
Blake Shelton, Lady Antebellum and Luke Bryan. 

As a musician, Beaird’s 12-string guitar work is featured on a
recent recording of Turn, Turn, Turn by Roger McGuinn,
Emmy Lou Harris and Ricky Skaggs.  This recording is included
