April 3, 2011 – By Adam Anthony

The Songwriter’s Association of Canada (S.A.C) Regional Writers Group Program is designed to provide members who live in all areas of the country with a series of specific songwriting lessons and a network of fellow writers, lyricists and composers. The program is also designed to keep members informed about issues and changes in the music industry, while establishing unity among songwriters everywhere.
Singers and songwriters of all age groups, and musical preferences are welcome to attend our weekly Songwriter's Groups to help develop their musical craft, with instruction from musical genius, Ron Beer.
Whitby Songwriter's Music Group is held every Friday, from 6:30- 8pm at the Brock Street Activity Centre at 900 Brock St S (corner of Brock St and Burns St) and is FREE OF CHARGE! Come to meet local musicians, improve your songwriting talent and develop your musicianship!
