Empowering Songwriting...

Girl Power!!!

I find that in some of the most exciting music experiences, the audience comes in all different shapes and sizes.....

A few weeks ago I had the privilege of visiting an after0school group called Taasc -- The American Adventure Service Corps -- and helping them use the tool of songwriting to create a song reminding them why it feels really, really good to be a girl.  Remember that young noggins are soooooooo sensitive.  Without discriminating minds yet, they absorb much of what you surround them with.  

Aren't these some pretty great messages they could digest about themselves???

Check out the video of our completed song HERE!



In addition to writing wonder-filled songs, Taasc give young girls other exposure to enriching activities, games, and adventures.  What I really love is the way the group includes an intergenerational mix of girls and young women (participants ranging from 1st to 4th grade, and mentors ranging from high school to young adult artists in the community) who can all share the common experiences and challenges we face as females.  From what I've gathered, this is exactly the kind of relationship-building we all need more of.  Whatever age you might be.  :)

If you'd like more info. about Taasc, check out their website HERE.

    I believe that girls are empowered people . In fact, I wrote a [url=http://www.getcoolessay.com/uk-bestessays-com-truly-reliable-essay-writing-service/]cool essay[/url] about it when I was in middle school. I have been good friend with a lot of girls at that time that boys would even tease me about it. With my inclination to music, I was able to write a few good songs about the girls at that time. It's sad that I lost them. I really like your initiative on how you taught and helped out these children. I believe that music is very empowering and helps them to express their emotions. I hope that you will be able to visit more communities.

    Writing songs is one way to express your feelings. Oftentimes, talking to another person doesn't work. Music can be cathartic. Songs can be mood boosters. I can't go a day without music. It makes me feel good and makes me feel better when I'm having an off day. When I work on my resume writing group reviews project, I tend to listen on the slow tune and melody. I think it helps be calm and think better.
