About the event
There is a lot going on in the world today. Some of the best songs are a snapshot of what it was like to experience those events firsthand. Learn how to take inspiration from current events and turn it into a song! In this online class, KC Groves will guide you through a group co-write experience about current situations such as the Black lives matter movement or the Covid lockdown and isolation. Work together to create a lyrical expression of the world today and gain the skills to continue to create songs about current events on your own.
