d418ab9c45221756af4f4738de48859aViacommunity day is Viacom’s Social Service day where employees partake in volunteer efforts in a variety of agencies around the city. This year, employees of Viacom will participate in a songwriting workshop hosted by Music Unites and BMI at the WC Bryant School in Queens. This workshop is designed to foster the creativity of adolescence through the medium of songwriting. Music Unites is looking for talented songwriters to contribute their skill to this special workshop. Here is how it works! 1-2 songwriters will be paired with 5 Viacom employees and a classroom of 20 high school kids. The goal of the 3 hour session will be to write a song all together. There will be up to 5 groups working on songs. The day will culminate with a casual performance of songs written by each group. This is an opportunity to educate kids about the process of songwriting, provide an emotional outlet through which to express themselves and promote a team building effort amongst peers.

This event will run from 9am to 1pm on Friday April 20th. We would like songwriters to bring in their guitars, computers or what ever it is your writing instrument is. Contact to get involved.
