Jason is celebrating nineteen years of teaching the acclaimed BMI Nashville Songwriter Workshops. He presents (9) BMI Workshops per year. The events are free--and open to everyone on a "first-sign-up" basis. Sign-up info is at the bottom of this page.

Each workshop includes a lecture portion -- and either song critiques by Jason OR an opportunity for each participant to pitch one song to a music publisher.

You can find the sign-up date for any future workshop by going to the Calendar page at and clicking on that month’s “Jason Blume Workshop.” They are also listed below.

There are typically several “no-shows” at each workshop . You can sign up for one of those slots beginning at 9 AM in the BMI lobby the day of the workshop.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE…… if you sign up and find you can’t attend, please cancel your regitration online so another writer will be able to fill that slot... if you don't cancel, you won't be able to sign up for future workshops.
