39th Annual Music Conference


The 2019 West Coast Songwriters Conference will be held on Saturday, September 14th and Sunday the 15th at Blue Bear School Of Music, Fort Mason. 

With a special kick-off social event Friday night the 20th in San Francisco., it’s your chance to meet fellow conference attendees as well as the many and varied industry leaders instructing the full weekend of seminars. Our “UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL” event means just that – industry leaders are always available to chat throughout the weekend to musicians, media and those interested in a career in the music industry.

Few music conferences provide such an intimate setting for networking with prominent industry guests. Saturday and Sunday attendees are provided the rare opportunity to:

  • participate in one-on-one consultations with industry leaders at the top of their game,
  • develop networking opportunities,
  • attend songwriting seminars,
  • learn about the latest industry standards,
  • attend legal workshops,
  • participate in voice coaching, sound quality & stage presence lessons,
  • have lyrics reviewed,
  • participate in song screenings
  • and performance showcases



There are so many seminars and individual consultations that it is practically impossible to pick and choose which to attend. And it doesn’t end there! Saturday evening enjoy a beautiful sunset concert with the three grand finalists from the yearlong songwriters competitions held in over 12 locations. These finalists have the rare opportunity to perform in front of more than 60 music industry professionals, looking to sign new bands, musicians and songwriters.  Saturday night, join everyone at Jack’s Cannery Bar, 2801 Leavenworth St, San Francisco for an after party & open mic.

This is a weekend to prepare for; bring your bio/photos and CD’s and promote yourself amongst the accessible, leading industry guests; meet new friends and forge new relationships to further your music career.
