This course designed by music therapist Aimee Berends targets teens who wish to channel their creativity through the power of music and songwriting. We know that songwriting and the creative arts can help relax students, improve their self-esteem, and leave them with a finished product that they are proud of, which may help them overcome some of their obstacles.

As part of this course, students will get to work with both a songwriting mentor as well as a professional studio engineer to create an original recording of their song!

Open to: Ages 12 – 17 with an interest in songwriting.

Cost: $130 per semester (11 weeks) (Scholarships available for families in need)
