A sister calls me 'Dan Stewart', my grandfather's last name was 'Ayaïs', and some musician friends call me 'RJR' for 'Robinson, Just Robinson.' You can call me what you like . . .

(Yeah, but whose side?)

Sign up HERE for a Musical Haiku Writing Lab at Rhizome in Takoma DC this August (2023)

Wednesdays 7-9pm - August 2-23 - Ages 14 and up
Haikus are short poems - often three lines, usually not rhyming. 10 of mine set to music are HERE.
The Musical Haiku Writing Lab will approach songwriting and performance with a tight and fun focus.

Short form composition will let us pay close attention to many elements - lyric, melody, harmony, rhythm, meaning, and connection to the audience and fellow musicians. Expect plenty of positive and constructive feedback and collaboration.

Any instruments are welcome, including voice, to wrap your poems in. The goal will be for everyone to write and perform at least one haiku at each session. Bring pencil and paper and an open mind.

Dan Robinson is a local songwriter and musician with broad and deep experience in many forms of music.

Price: $120 for series, $35 for drop-in. Student and other discounts available.
