Dean's Sunday afternoon 'Songwriting Seminar' at the Flemings-Mayfair Hotel, London

Sunday, 21st October, 2012   1:00pm to 5:00pm

 Cost for the 'seminar' is 225 and the afternoon will run approximately 4 hours - from 1pm to 5pm - with a break for snacks.

Dean's London songwriting course will be a condensed one-afternoon version of the 4-day course he holds annually in Carcassonne, France (minus the swimming pool, tennis court and sunflower fields, etc... ;-) but will be a thorough exploration of Dean's perspective on songwriting and will include attendee participation and sharing of songs.

Attendees are invited to bring their instruments, but expertise on an instrument is not required - ask Bernie Taupin. (Note: banjos allowed only under adult supervision;-). Topics to be covered will include 'choosing direction', 'coaxing inspiration' and 'solving the puzzle'. This course is open to aspiring and experienced songwriters of every level, based on the premise that we all have something to learn from each other's personal expression.

Any questions, please email Dean at

Enrollment is limited, so if interested, don't leave it too late.
