What Is The Soul Kitchen?
The Songwriter Soul Kitchen is a Creativity Exchange, a meeting place for artists of all levels... singers, musicians, producers, and just plain creative folk. For one full week or weekend, you will experience hands on workshops, creativity sessions, writing sessions with groups and as an individual, multiple live performance opportunities and much more. Soul Kitchen is the brainchild of Vinx De'Jon Parrette, Berklee College of Music educator, songwriter, recording artist, and coach.
During the week / weekend, each session is crafted to present and develop tools for critical listening to help you better understand the source of your inspiration. We all have a life filter that houses our library of experiences and memories. This filter allows us to color and embellish all information that is received through it. Yet we rarely recognize that our true genius walks within our own unique creative process.
The Workshop Objectives:
1. Find ways to be inspired (triggering the artist within)
2. Meet your genius - introduction to your self (critical listening)
3. Expose your unique opinion and creativity (authentic self)
4. Learn to respect the creative process and truth of others (true diversity / first kiss)
5. See and hear beyond the obvious. (between the notes / vocal styling / back story)
6. Master our melody challenge - Create 5 melodies from 1 groove
7. Discover harmony as scat - explore your choices
8. Lyric Lessons - just because it rhymes doesn't make it a song
