Organic Songwriting Sessions Online with Jim Henman

A message from Jim Henman, performer, songwriter and founding member of Canada’s April Wine and inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.


Crazy times we are experiencing, socially and economically for we self employed. As a singer/songwriter, I am now an unemployed self employed. With this in mind I have decided to begin offering my Organic Songwriting Method courses online through FaceTime, Skype, Messenger or WhatsApp.
For those who don’t know me, I have been writing songs for over 50 years, both as a solo activity and co-writing with other songwriters. My songwriting experience, study and talent have helped me in growing a vibrant and diverse garden of original songs. I plant these seeds every time I sit down and experiment, collaborate, and reflect with a mind open to inspiration from any and all sources. I love it when I Keep it simple with even the smallest touch of profound. These ideas or seeds, consisting of title, story, melody, lyrics etc. sometimes don’t always produce inspiration or direction. They may suggest I try a new idea and so demand I pay attention to each seed in the moment. It’s all very organic being developed like seeds into a growing plant which led me to call the process Organic Songwriting. One part grows into another quite naturally if it has the creative potential. It seems to produce good fruit as the gardeners say. I have collaborated on 20 songs and released 2 cds using this method.

I am a Juno Hall of Fame inductee as a cofounder of Canada’s April Wine. I am the third member of The Myles Goodwyn Trio who have been actively touring Canada and USA these last 3 years and I also perform with my own trio in Canada.
I have been active as a co-writer for over 20 years. Some of the songwriters I have collaborated with include Laura Smith, Joel Plaskett, Terry Kelly, Jerry Rideout, Dawn Harwood-Jones, Konrad Pluta, Myles Goodwyn, Harry Michael Trask, Jean Beks and Keith Mullins. I have written with all age groups from 12 to 70.
Performing on an instrument is not necessary to engage in Organic Songwriting. Just an open mind having the spark of creativity is enough. The basics of song structure, story development, melody, lyric and rhyme are applied through out the process. You’ll be surprised at what you can create.
