Family Songwriting Workshop
With Mary Amato

In this workshop perfect for kids and adults to experience together, you’ll learn a simple and fun method for making up lyrics and melodies. We’ll write one collaborative song as a group, then each family will create their own song together before we finish with a group sing-along. You’ll go home with songs in your heart and a strategy for writing more!

Ideal for kids ages 7–12 plus parents, grandparents, caregivers, and other family members. No musical experience necessary.
