About the Event
Popular Music Arrangement: A Producer's Viewpoint is a workshop that delves into the often-overlooked aspect of music production that makes songs successful. Led by Eric Bragg, a musician, recording/mixing engineer, producer, and electronics engineer with extensive experience in the industry, the workshop will take place on June 11th, from 4:00pm to 6:00pm in the Great Room at the Writers' Colony at Dairy Hollow. The event is open to musicians looking to produce their music in a studio and has a capacity of 20 participants with a recommended donation of $20.
During the workshop, participants will gain a producer's perspective on music arrangement, with a focus on analyzing their own music.

This workshop is an opportunity to gain insight into the producer's viewpoint and learn the "guts" of music arrangement that make songs successful.
