REACHING OUT AND RAISING VOICES
Singnasium is dedicated to creating and nurturing the next generation of vocal artists. By encouraging young people to create and write their own songs, to sing their stories, and to find appreciation for all types of music, the teaching artists help build confidence, strengthen musical skills, and give a sense of connection and camaraderie.

SING YOUR STORY SCHOOL PROGRAM (multi-week)

We’ve all heard the expression, “From the mouths of babes…”, and at Singnasium we take that to heart. Everyone has a story to tell. In this program, students are given the tools to tell their own personal stories. Joyful to sad, funny to heartwarming, participants are encouraged and empowered to turn their thoughts and experiences into music. With the guidance of Singnasium Teaching Artists, each child will write a song and perform it. Students will also explore vocal techniques, story telling exercises, and group singing.

ALOT
“I used to be so angry, and no one ever knew,
because I looked so happy, 
but underneath my sadness grew.
My smile hid my fears; my laughter hid my tears. 
My joy hid my pain: I thought I’d go insane. 
But now, my life is changing. I’m healing day by day now. 
I knew I couldn’t stand it. 
I feel I’m on my way now.
I’ve been through a lot,
I’ve seen a lot,
And I know a lot.”
