Young people in Lichfield and Burntwood will get the chance to learn the art of songwriting on a free course.

Organised by Lichfield Arts, the four-weeks of two hour sessions are aimed at people aged 14 to 21.

It will be led by musician and composer Rosie Tee and Dan Cippico, a member of young band Gathering Tides.

A spokesperson said: “The aim of the course is to introduce beginner songwriters to composition and performance, resulting in a finished song ready for an informal performance to the rest of the group at the end of the final session.

“The songwriter does not have to perform their song themselves – they may ask someone else if they wish.

“Collaborations between songwriters on the course are also welcomed.”

The course takes place at Burntwood’s Neon Studios from 10am to 12pm each Sunday from September 23.
