Spread the word and invite your friends <3
Monday February 5th, 5-7pm: Songwriting Workshop
Stumped on how to start writing a song or lyrics? What about on how to collaborate with others to write songs? In this workshop we'll discuss what makes a good song, sources of inspiration, and collaborate with one another to work with rhythm and writing lyrics!
Monday February 12th, 5-7pm: Basic Guitar Skills
Both experienced and non-experienced guitar players are invited to come develop guitar skills at this workshop! We'll go over chords, strumming and plucking patterns, & playing together🎸
Monday February 19th, 5-7pm: Karaoke Party!
KARAOKE! All are invited to come sing their hearts out (or just watch + dance or support if you prefer 😉 )! 🎤🎤🎤<3
Saturday February 24th, 6-8pm: Community Potluck & Open Mic!
Our monthly community potluck returns, and this time it will also feature an open mic! LGBTQ+ youth 21 and under are encouraged to perform songs, poems, storytelling, comedy, theatre, magic tricks, etc…anything goes!
We'll also be discussing ideas and dreams for the new music program at Stonewall Youth. Both youth participants and folks interested in volunteering are invited to this community discussion as we formulate the new program!
February 26th, 5-7pm: Intro to Electronic Music + Synths
Interested in making electronic music? There are infinite possibilities…and this workshop will cover some of them! We'll have a short discussion about the different methods for making electronic music and cover some terminology, and then we'll invite everyone to take a walk through the "synth petting zoo" for some hands-on experimentation. Whether you're interested in making electro-pop, trance, EDM, or noise music, and whether you're a synth pro or a beginner, all are welcome to come explore the variety of synthesizers we'll be bringing in 🙂
