Tap into your inner musician with our new series of songwriter’s workshops!
Thanks to funding from the Nelson B. Delavan Foundation, the library will offer this series of workshops for all generations.
Children, teens, and adults will begin by learning how to construct lyrics by writing a song together as a group. In following workshops, participants will write lyrics for a melody provided by the instructors. The song written as a group will be performed and professionally recorded. Independently-written songs will be performed at a community concert scheduled in early December.
The workshop series is run by Nancy and John Bryan, a professional singer-songwriting duo. Nancy Bryan is a Grammy-nominated songwriter who has written songs for Walt Disney Records as well as shows featured on MTV. John Bryan is a talented sound technician who is highly skilled at creating music tracks that artfully blend the sounds of instruments with the voices of singers. Both Nancy and John give participants an amazing opportunity to learn about the variety of skills involved in creating and producing music.
