Host the "Be an Idol" - Songwriting Program at your centre!
During this exciting new course, participants will form small groups and create their own CD from start to finish, to share with family and friends for years to come! Participants will be amazed at their abilities, as they create their own lyrics, perform and ultimately record their own CD! In addition to singing, “Idols” will design their own CD cover and create their “look”. A photo session will take place and each CD label will be customized for the performers. No experience is necessary and all materials and inspiration are included.
