“Lynne Drysdale Patterson knows what she's talking about. She's a singer, songwriter and worship leader, so when she teaches classes that touch on these topics, she brings first-hand knowledge to the table. She has been a song evaluator and teacher in various programs at the Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI) for years, and is a valued member and dear friend.
Her most recent workshop is called “Writing A Song From A Storyline,” and it pulls the participant straight into the process. She picks a paragraph from a newspaper, for example, and teaches her class to pull elements from it to create a song. Around those compelling story pieces, she shows how to arrange the chorus, verses and melody into a memorable song. Participants can walk away with something concrete to use as a template for building their song craft.
Lynne is engaged in the practice of “being” in the world, and seeing it through a spiritual perspective. And on top of that, she is funny, dropping jokes and puns around her like little bits of candy, a trail to follow so you don't even realize you're working.”

Her soothing, clear vocal sound brings healing to anyone who will receive what the Spirit of God is saying through her music. She knows how to elevate her audience - both young and old - to the things that are lovely and pure because her focus is always
