Learning how to tell a story through a song has been one of the greatest gifts in my life. Songs are a beautiful way to explore and express our own experiences and the stories we collect along the way. But every active or aspiring songwriter encounters challenges and roadblocks, which have been a focal point in the workshops I've led over the past few years. 

In these exclusive one-on-one online sessions, I will meet you - or the recipient of your gift! - where you are at, both in your song and in your space. We'll work together in the comfort of our own homes to unlock your story, find its musical mate, and get it ready to share. Whether it begins with an idea and a blank page, or a draft that's been waiting for its chance to shine, I am excited to help your project hatch!

The workshop includes:

- An introductory email exchange, where I get to know you and your project;

- A video consultation via Zoom, Facebook, Instagram, or online platform of your choice, where we dig into the nuts and bolts and swap tricks and techniques to work on;

- A follow-up email capturing our ideas and progress, including audio recordings;

- An online wrap up session, where we revisit the song to see how it has progressed, what work remains, and talk about how to share it live, online, or in the studio!

In the past few years, I have had the great joy of collaborating with seasoned vets like David Francey, Kim Barlow, and Ryan Cook; and first-time songwriters, one-on-one or in a whole room full of folks, like the Our Fragile Earth community event for climate change. Every experience brings its rewards, and though I can't guarantee a gold record, I can promise that I will do my best to help bring your idea to life alongside you...through our screens!

Sessions are active now on a flexible schedule.

Terra is wonderful and covered many important aspects of the song writing process. She has a talent for making everyone feel comfortable. It was enjoyable and felt safe. ”
Terra is wonderful and covered many important aspects. It was really very useful and encouraging for me - I have been at various points a 'blocked writer' or someone who feels on the outside of the music community (low confidence at times). This group helped me to believe in myself, to make connections and to 'own' my status as a songwriter at precisely the stage I am now. Practically, I wrote more during this course - it really helped to have the accountability, challenge and validation of the group.”
I enjoyed it so much I want more!!”
