This seminar ran in June 2010 in New Zealand and Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney and in Melbourne and Sydney in January 2016
Illuminate your songwriting: Involve your audience more deeply in your song by creating the most potent lens for them to look through. This weekend seminar will focus on Point of View as a tool, illustrating and understanding all the possible angles for viewing, and their effects on the listener. Choosing the right Point of View is the difference between “Wow!” and “Next.” Let everyone see your songs shine like they should.
The workshop on "Point-Of-View" that Pat taught in Austin, Texas was nothing short of AMAZING. This seminar was the best one yet. Pat's wisdom and humor make him a wonderful teacher, and the techniques that he showed us are simple and efficient additions to my song writing toolbox They expand the possibilities of my lyrics and my songs. They are not just solutions to problems or ways to overcome obstacles in song writing; they are basic and incredibly effective techniques that I will be using on a regular basis from now on. With his seminars, workshops, and books, Pat's pool of knowledge and wisdom can make ANYONE a better songwriter!
Pat Pattison’s week-end seminar on Point of View was an incredible adventure and Pat is no ordinary teacher! He doesn’t simply tell you about songwriting and leave it at that. You experience the tools that make the difference between great songs and mediocre writing and you “Get it!” It doesn’t seep in slowly, it’s like “Bam!” Now I’m wondering how I ever wrote songs at all without this knowledge.
