Songbook Social Media Training

Register Now to Attend a Social Media Workshop

Survey results have shown that our Blue Ridge Music Trails partners know the value of using social media to promote their music venues, events, and music. But results also revealed that many partners would welcome some help in learning how to use this powerful and economical new media.

If you want to know more about the ins-and-outs of Facebook, how to use Instagram, Twitter, and more,  we invite you to register below for one of the social media workshops we’re hosting this spring. We’ll be sharing and exploring some creative techniques and helpful principles with hands-on interaction.

Cost is $20 per person and includes light refreshments and a copy of the new “Songbook” social media handbook. Preregistration is required, and space is limited, so register now!
