Allan Caswell has been considered one of Australia’s most successful and most recorded songwriters. He is the go to co-writer for many of Australia’s top Country Artists. He brings a wealth of experience, skill and craft to every writing session and in recent years he has been drawn more and more to passing on the knowledge, principles and tricks of the trade to new and established writers around the country in his songwriting workshops.
‘I can teach you things in five minutes that took me 35 years of trial and error to learn and I can also teach you things that I learned in five minutes from someone else who had put in the 35 years…it’s about sharing and passing things on…and I’m passionate about it.’
