Songwriting for Teens
Instructor: Emma Ayres
Days: Thursdays, 5:30 to 7 p.m.
Dates: 6 weeks, February 28 – April 4
Suggested ages, 13 to 18. Bring a notebook, pencil, water bottle, and an instrument if you play one. What do you have to say? How do you want to say it? Who are you and who do you strive to be? What kind of change do you want to make in your life and the world around you? How can a song be an effective tool of communication and self-empowerment? How have songs been used to challenge the status quo through history? Over the course of 6 weeks, each participant will be immersed in exploring their voice as a singer-songwriter. Instructor Emma Ayres is a local musician, playwright, director and artist. She is currently in the band Old Flame. Register now!

The fourth Friday of the month at noon, come play with other musicians at Artspace.
Each session will be led by an Artspace music teacher.
Experienced musicians and those just getting their feet wet playing with others are encouraged to come, all instruments welcome.

We hope to encourage a local culture of people playing together in different venues.
