Special Offer From Larry Beaird!

The Expo is thrilled to have Nashville recording/producing stalwart Larry Beaird back conducting his 9:00AM Saturday (March 3rd) "Arranging the Hit" class!

IMPORTANT: Please read this note about Larry's "Arranging The Hit" special offer!

While great songwriters focus on lyrics and melodies, professional arranger and producer Larry Beaird thinks about intros, tempos, solos, grooves, unique chord progressions, modulations, dynamics and musical hooks that will make those lyrics and melodies sound like hits. Twenty years of experience have taught Beaird the value of great arrangements, and how successful songwriters benefit from that value every day. In his workshop, you’ll have the opportunity to observe how techniques of skilled arrangers can be used to enhance the sound of your songs. Writers can submit songs in advance, which may be possibly included in the class discussion. Please send mp3s to

Check Out DSE Videos. Amazing stuff! Are you there?
