Andrew enjoyed a second year leading three free songwriting workshops for aspiring middle and high school songwriters in Frederick County, Maryland as part of the Chords of Courage Student Songwriting Contest. He worked with over a dozen young writers teaching and discussing the craft of songwriting, while offering one on one help with their submissions.
Chords of Courage is dedicated to changing the conversation from the demoralizing and cynical to the hopeful and inspirational – one song at a time. This contest is the first of its kind in the world, open to Frederick County (Maryland) middle and high school age students, to encourage young writers to use their creativity to write dynamic and powerful songs about people of particular courage.
You can come and hear the award winning writers and their creations, arranged by Tomy Wright and the house band, at the STEP UP! Awards Concert on Saturday, April 13 at 7:45PM in the JBK Theater, Frederick Community College. Purchase your tickets here.
