SAW offers songwriters a range of performance opportunities, including showcases and monthly open mikes at several locations in the Washington metro area. These are great places to gain performance experience, test new material, gain greater exposure, meet other songwriters, find collaborators, and/or just hang out and hear some good music!
SAW Membership Directory
SAW's Membership Directory, available online exclusively to members, can be a valuable tool. As a member, along with your contact information, you may include information about yourself to let others know what you do or what you are looking for (Examples include: I teach guitar; looking for collaborators, lyricist seeking melodies, etc).
SAW frequently sponsors excellent workshops and seminars featuring guest songwriters, musicians, producers, and other music industry professionals to help its members hone and polish their songwriting and performance skills and learn about the business of songwriting. SAW's monthly Saturday morning Songwriter Exchange is a friendly, supportive environment for peer feedback on songs-in-progress and also provides the opportunity to gain valuable insight into how other songwriters approach their craft.
