City Art Space will present two songwriting workshops to Shippensburg University students on Feb. 27 from 10-10:50 a.m. and 11-11:50 a.m. in Ceddia Union Building (CUB) Room 119.
Recording artist, songwriter and educator Amanda Carter will host the workshops, which will promote topics like inclusivity and creativity.
Carter will lead participants through hip-hop and R&B instrumentation, and will discuss the power of messaging, authenticity and respect. The main goal of the event is to get participants to come together and learn how to write songs.
Growing up invested in music, Carter released a Top 10 album on college radio charts in Paris. Her music videos aired on national networks, and she served as a voting member of the GRAMMYs Recording Academy.
Students are invited to attend to learn how to write songs and how to communicate with fellow songwriters.
