Sara Groves, Singer/Songwriter, St. Paul, MN

The first and only songwriting class I took was from Dave Pedde.  I was a high school teacher who wrote songs in her living room, and I wasn’t sure if they were good songs, or if it mattered. At that pivotal time in my life, Dave gave me a full range of tools that still inform my writing today.  Recently, I found an opportunity to sit in on a songwriting session with him again - this time my sons were in the room with me, and I was prompting them to take good notes!  Dave has an amazing perspective on the integrated life, and speaks seamlessly about the practical craft of songwriting, the heart of the writer, the role of the faith-informed artist in a community.  He is the kind of teacher and mentor I want the creative people in my life to know!
