A short course on song writing hosted by Kyron Smithson of Kyza Presents, with a view to connection, collaboration and creativity through song writing.

NOV 12: An introductory session will act as a platform for attendees to discuss their interest in song writing while Kyron covers a range of simple methods that can aid in the development of songs.

DEC 10: Our second session collaborative song writing will look at working with others to bring a song to life through the addition of music, melody, and percussion.

JAN 7: Our final workshop will focus upon taking pieces created over the first two sessions and preparing them for delivery in the live realm.

Participants are invited to perform their pieces at the Launch of The Cannery Arts Centres Art In Isolation Exhibition.

Kyron Smithson is an Esperance local having attended Esperance Senior High School prior to a five-year stint in Perth where he studied and completed a bachelor degree in Tourism Marketing and Management. Kyron is an avid supporter of original music, and shortly after returning to Esperance in 2014 he created the Esperance based promotional business, Kyza Presents, with a key goal of creating a busy and ongoing presence of live music in the region. In 5 short years, and through tireless efforts, Kyza Presents has grown from an idea into the ‘go-to’ Event Management company in Esperance and the surrounding region. Since its conception Kyza Presents has been responsible for hundreds of shows

and events in and around Esperance, ranging from open mics, acoustic sessions, hip hop evenings, through to large scale ticketed events featuring multiple bands.

KyzaPresents is founded out of a love for live music and a desire to support the Esperance community, artists and punters alike, by creating a culture of live music that fosters inclusion, diversity, and most importantly, the development of opportunities available to the many musicians and artists in the region.
