The Songwriting Project is an 8-week program focused on writing original songs. Kids and Teens who stutter work in small groups with accomplished professional songwriters who guide them in the process of turning their ideas into music. Our Music Director, Everett Bradley, then arranges the songs for a live band and everyone has the opportunity to perform their work on stage at the legendary Joe’s Pub!
Why Songs? For many people who stutter, singing and rapping can free their voice in ways that speaking sometimes can’t. Singing engages our brains and our voices in a different and exciting way!
Participants have the opportunity to share their work on stage – with no pressure to perform – in small groups at the culmination of each program, in a performance fully produced by SAY’s distinguished artistic staff. It’s the ultimate confidence-building experience that transfers directly into the classroom and everyday life.
Registration is OPEN.
