We are excited to bring you a special guest speaker to round out 2022, for December’s #ASCSydneyCircle: learn all about crafting chords and melodic hooks from the amazing Keppie Coutts!

In addition to starting her teaching career as an Assistant Professor of Songwriting at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Keppie has been personally mentored by Pat Pattison (author of Writing Better Lyrics), and Grammy award-winning songwriter John Mayer.

Keppie was a recipient of the ASCAP Lester Sill Professional Development mentorship in Los Angeles (2011), and since then has taught songwriting and lyric writing for Berklee Online, The Songwriting School of LA, the Australian College of the Arts, the Australian Institute of Music, the JMC Academy, and the Open Academy at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. She is the founder of the popular YouTube channel, How to Write Songs.

Keppie’s 2022 album, Mothertongues, was commissioned by Penguin Random House Australia, and is an album of original work about motherhood, and one of the first full albums of original songs to be included in an audiobook release.

Don’t miss this great mix of theory, discussion, and practical exercises.
