Toronto Songwriting School provides songwriting instruction for every level of songwriter – from beginners who have never written a song and don’t play an instrument, to experienced songwriters looking to refine their craft, perform live and record their music.

The school is led by Murray Foster, a Juno-nominated songwriter, producer, and performer with songwriting credits on multiple certified gold and platinum recordings. Best known for his role in two legendary Canadian bands, he has a reputation as an insightful collaborator and a patient instructor and mentor to up-and-coming songwriters.

Toronto Songwriting School supports songwriters at any level from music beginners to seasoned professionals, with small-group songwriting classes, private lessons, school songwriter workshops, songwriting retreats, and songwriter showcase opportunities.
