Songwriting Workshop

This program features a professional songwriter who composes a song with the students during the workshop. The participants are surveyed in advance on a variety of subjects, and we use that information to collectively write a unique song for the group.

Participants leave with a fundamental understanding of music structure, rhythm, and interpretation. They feel a sense of ownership for their collective creation and an appreciation for what they can accomplish together.

Warms my heart and brings me peace - G D A
