Artist-in-Residence: Mark Cutler’s Songwriting Workshops @ Bay Spring Community Center
Jan 27 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

RI Music Hall of Fame Inductee, Mark Cutler continues his popular songwriting series at at the Center.  In this weekly workshop, Mark will walk you through the creative magic of writing songs.  Everyone is welcome to be part of the collaborative process.  You’ll be amazed at the music that is written and often recorded during these sessions.

Mark will run the songwriting workshops in the spirit of his successful, “The Same Thing Project” – a creative experience for people from all walks of life.

In Mark’s words…

“We provide a place where you don’t have to be skilled at a musical instrument in order to be musical. The goal is to have a place where someone can be part of a creative community that is open, non-judgmental and encouraging.

It’s our belief that the world is a better place when people can express themselves in an imaginative way.  A society is measured by how much it nurtures its arts and culture. People appreciate the arts more when they themselves take part in creating it (whatever that might be).  People are never too old or young to learn something new or to write a song. You can see that spark of inspiration go on in young kids, retired newspaper writers and the father and son who take lessons so that they can play guitars together. People who take part, know the feeling of being in the midst of the creative process. We want others in the community to experience it.”
