WoodyFest Songwriting Workshop!

Songwriters and aspiring songwriters are invited to attend the 6th Annual Ellis Paul WoodyFest Songwriting Workshop on Saturday, July 17 from 10am to 1pm ET. The workshop is being held this year at BancFirst, located at 402 W. Broadway (across from the Crystal Theatre) in Okemah, OK.


Over the past several years, Ellis has created learning tools to complement his teaching that he utilizes in his workshops. These instructional posters form a trilogy starting with the Song Idea Generator, moving to the Song Editing Wheel and finishing with Music Hall Performance.

Students who register in advance will receive one FREE 11x17 poster of their choice from the three mentioned above. After registering, you will receive an e-mail where you can make your poster selection.

Students will also receive a voucher for 90-day access to Ellis' TrueFire Channel.

Students should be a minimum 14 years of age and should bring a notebook and pen. Students are also encouraged to bring songs they may be working on! Here’s a snippet of a video of Ellis working with a student at the 2017 Songwriting Workshop: Video from the 2017 WoodyFest Songwriting Workshop

Online registration ends at noon on Monday, July 12. Because of space constraints, this year's workshop is limited to 20. If not sold out, students can also register/pay at the door ($50).
