We are delighted that she has agreed to come back again this year. 15-21 May.Diane Ponzio workshop

Anyone who knows Diane won’t be surprised that she created a great buzz last year. The students arrived with no ideas about a song and left having written,arranged, played and sung their own composition. No mean feat in just a week and all credit to Dianes indominatable energy and enthuisiasm.

This year promises to be just as exciting. So if you have dreamed of writing the lyrics Diane Ponzio singing tutorialfor and composing a song, then this workshop is for you.

Diane will also run a session every morning giving you the confidence and skills to sing your song in tune!

Diane prefers to work with a small group and so numbers are limited to 8 so if you have always dreamed of writing your very own song and are looking for inspiration and encouragement check out our web site.

You won’t be disappointed and you can gurarantee you will go home proud of what you have achieved, while enjoying yourself on a relaxed and supportive music holiday.
