Performance Opportunities

Either as part of a RISA event or referred to other organizations or venues by RISA, there are many opportunities to perform your original work.

Collaborative Opportunities

Are you looking for someone to write and/or perform with?  RISA has scores of writers/performers. Through networking, advertising in the newsletters, critiques or other RISA events you may find a musical collaborator.


Learn from industry professionals! We strive to present workshops that enhance our members knowledge of the craft of songwriting.

Great Music!

You'll find some of the best people you'll ever meet and some of the best music you may have (never) heard as part of RISA. It's all a lot of fun, but serious music business at the same time! All Types of Music:  A good song is a good song and good songwriting applies across the board. We welcome and encourage writers of all genres to join. Not surprisingly, many members have become great friends...and we have even had occasions of relationships blossoming from RISA... may get much more than music!!!
