In the Schools

Classroom JamJames has developed a program for songwriting in the schools called Rhyme Capsules. His workshops have created so many budding songwriters, that if he keeps it up he’ll have put himself out of work in a few years! Read on for details!


James’  workshops can be customized to meet the needs of students, seniors, or the community at large. It is also available for teacher or corporate training! No previous musical experience is necessary. Participants learn, through writing songs together, that open-mindedness, listening and courage are key components of collaboration and creativity.

Weekend with Katherine Wheatley

Katherine Wheatley and myself host an annual weekend songwriting retreat here in Guelph. It’s been going for quite a few years now. This past winter we had a great success with opening our neighbouring home studios to a group of 16 writers from all levels. Watch this space in the fall when we’ll announce details for next winter!
