Songwriting Workshops and Residencies for Diversity Education

Martin Swinger was a nationally acclaimed singer, songwriter, and arts educator. He led our roster of artists available to offer school residencies to help students process historical and contemporary issues related to any aspect of diversity. Students and teachers alike enjoy sharing in the creative process to write songs. They benefit from reflecting the values of respect acceptance, communication, and understanding. Plus, singing creates community!

Schedule Your Songwriting Workshops or Residencies

For schools facing ‘issues,’ Songwriting Workshops and Residencies help meet goals. One goal may be the creation of a school ‘anthem’ honoring local traditions and instilling an aura of pride in the school community. 

In arts residencies, our artists model inclusion, respect, patience and humor. Additionally, students work together and individually to express their own original ideas in the song.  Residencies may accommodate a single classroom visit, a day-long (3-4 classes) visit, or up to a week-long residency (3-4 classes each day), Prices negotiable based on residency duration, number of classes visited, and travel required. If the stock order does not satisfy your needs, feel free to contact us directly to negotiate a visit that fits your particular needs. 

We are also seeking to expand our team of leaders who are passionate about managing Art Residencies and Workshops. Join the team to help inspire creative artists with our student-focused programs!
