Chords of Courage is changing the conversation from the demoralizing and cynical to the hopeful and inspirational – one song at a time. They have created the first songwriting contest of its kind in the world, open to Frederick County (Maryland) middle and high school age students and encourages them to use their creativity to write dynamic and powerful songs about people of particular courage.

Andrew will be spending two mornings working with any eligible young writers who'd like to study the craft of songwriting, and get some help working on their submissions. He will be with Chords of Courage staff at New Spire Arts, 115 East Church Street in Frederick from 10am to 1pm on Saturday Feb. 10th and 24th.

Interested young writers, please check out the contest rules and join Andrew for a workshop or two.
