This will be a special ONE-DAY workshop where we'll spend the day looking at the places, the things, the issues we bump up against in life and find ways of turning these into truth.  We'll read from poets and playwrights and activists and songwriters, do quick writes, collaborate, and come away from this one day workshop with a new song and new co-writers!

In songwriting and in self, I left knowing what authenticity looks like...a sense of community developed and an ability to draw people out of the fear and comfort zones into that community..[it was] a tremendous gift in a world of competition.
— Audrey, Fall 2015 workshop attendee
Amy possesses a passion to teach what she knows and has been an integral part of the performance faculty at the Song School for nearly two decades. I consider her classes mandatory for all performing songwriters.
— Steve Szkymanski, Director, Song School, Rocky Mtn. Folks Festival
Amy Speace is a brilliant and intuitive performance teacher, with hard earned wisdom to offer her students, and the passion and courage to convey it.
