SongJam has been several years in the making. ArranmoreArts has had a long-standing relationship with Grammy nominated singer/songwriter Justin Roberts. His albums are some of the most innovative and popular in the children's pop/rock category, as indicated by his two consecutive Grammy nods. Justin, along with his producer, acclaimed Chicago musician, Liam Davis will offer 90-minute songwriting workshops for children. We will offer sessions for elementary, junior high and high school ages. Music has enjoyed a renaissance of sorts with the popularity of singing competitions and televised music events. Our hope is to bring children back to the basics of sharing their emotions and thoughts through music. This is a transformative experience where children are able to actualize personal experience and emotion into a tangible piece of art that they can feel proud of creating together. This can propel them to be more inspired in every area of their lives. SongJam can hold 20 children per session.
