Event description

Description

Explore songwriting with the guitar and other instruments in our two-hour workshop! Each student will be taught how to play a simple chord then write a song as a group and as part of a songwriting team. At the end of the session, we'll have a performance!

We'll discuss how music helps us express our feelings, and in that process of creativity, we face our fears and take creative risks which help us grow. Please bring your guitar or ukelele if you have one. If you don't, a variety of instruments will be provided.

Open to Ages 7 and 13
Investment: $44/child (must have a minimum of 6 students to run. Families will be notified at least three days in advance if class is a go. Registration ends on 6/8)
Location Note: There is no elevator to the upstairs space, only stairs. Please plan accordingly.
(A second offering is on June 17 through www.ArtSparkCreative.com in Littleton)
Since 2009, it has been my honor and privilege to teach guitar and songwriting to youth in Denver Public Schools through my City Strings Guitar program. Please let me know if you have any questions by email or phone jen@citystringsguitar.com or 720.341.9737.
About the teacher: Jen Pastalo Dacpano is a mother of four, school psychologist, singer-songwriter, and jewelry artist. Jen founded City Strings Guitar in 2009 which provides affordable group guitar and songwriting lessons in Denver Public Schools' after-school enrichment programs. Her passions for community, teaching, and music have brought her to teach guitar. She has also taught piano and directed adult's and children's choirs. Jen stepped into the world of music at the age of 5 studying first the piano, then learning the electric organ, guitar, and ukelele in her 30s. With a background in School Psychology and over 20 years of working with children and families, she strives to honor all learning styles in a fun and encouraging environment. It is her joy to share her love of the guitar and songwriting. For Jen, being a part of watching a child grow and succeed is a gift.
