Teen Songwriting Lab
Teen Songwriting Labs provide a creative outlet for teens to improve self-expression, decrease stress and anxiety, and work on team-building skills. Music therapists guide teens in exploring music technologies via a hands-on approach, encouraging teens to step out of their comfort zone, express themselves creatively, and support their peers despite differences in musical preferences. Music therapists also support teens in writing original or piggybacked songs by offering musical suggestions or providing resources that aid in songwriting. After songwriting labs, various teens have performed their songs in front of their peers and mentors & independently asked for more resources to engage in songwriting at home.
