JMC Academy are so excited to be welcoming Clare onto our Melbourne Campus to chat through all things songwriting and music industry at the inaugural RE:Write Songwriting Camp!


I’m so excited to be a part of JMC’s Re:Write in celebration of songwriting. I’ve been doing it since I was a kid, as have most of you. In a room together I look forward to sharing some practical hints about where to find lyrics, how to settle on melody and the surprising freedom of not really knowing what you’re doing as a songwriter. There’ll be time for questions and I’ll be setting practical exercises too. Can’t wait to see you there.
