Songwriting Works™ - "Life's a Song CD & More - Be Part of It!" : the vision

Thanks to all who supported our successful Kickstarter Campaign.
"Life's a Song" is in the final phases of production!
LIFE's a SONG is a CD recording that will celebrate creativity across generations.

12 original songs of love and laughter, adventure and home, loss and triumph were composed in 8 Olympic Peninsula communities with 7 professional musicians and 200 Washingtonians, most age 60+ between 2007-2012. Locations included care facilities, community hangouts, and SW's HQ. Read about the forthcoming CD.

Thanks to all who hosted trainings and events with Songwriting Works' founder Judith-Kate Friedman in June.
NCCA's national Creative Aging Leadership Exchange and Conference in Washington DC was a tour-de-force field-expanding gathering of long-time practitioners, researchers and students. A joy to be in such a dedicated, and growing, intergenerational and international community. SW artist-in-residencies took place at Goodwin House in Alexandria, VA and in rural Amherst County with memory care participants and members of Lynchburg Meals on Wheels who wrote a progressive song en route to lunch - hosted by Amherst-Glebe Arts Response. In NYC, SW caught the musical theater vibe composing a song for LGBT Pride with members of NYC's Sage Center and Elders Share the Arts. The tour came full circle with a panel of experts discussing arts importance for those living with Alzheimer's on Boomer Generation Radio June 24th in Phila. (Download).
