What We Do

Songwriting Works™ creates life-affirming musical experiences by bringing professional songwriters and elders, youth and families–diverse in culture, economic circumstances, and physical, cognitive and emotional capacities–together in transformational collaborations. Our programs and trainings are based on research-vetted methods and the understanding that all people are naturally intelligent, musical, and cooperative, and that making music can profoundly restore joy, hope, health and community for all.
