Songwriting Workshops


We teach songwriting to students of all ages: no music experience necessary.

With the help of Music Notes artists, students across the country have written their own songs on topics ranging from anti-vaping to bike helmet safety. Scroll down to learn about our student songwriting contest, go behind the scenes with our teachers at our songwriting workshops, and watch videos from past student workshops!
