Songwriting and Soundscapes

Monday August 12

1:00 PM  –  4:00 PM


Monday through Friday, August 12 – 16 @ 1-4 p.m.
Cost: $125 ($100 for M members)
This is a 5-day workshop | Ages 13 – 17

Join artists Lady Midnight and Mischa Kegan as they breakdown sonic worlds to explore basic songwriting composition and structure. Work with sound production applications, hardware gadgets, sampling, various instrumentation, and your voice to create original works, ranging from atmospheric, experimental soundscapes to contemporary pop. Youth are encouraged (but not required) to bring any musical equipment, instruments, or device that makes sounds they’d like to create with. This workshop will meet and take place at the M, with the exception of one field trip day to the YMCA Best Buy Teen Tech Center, approximately 1.5 blocks from the museum.

Scholarships are available on request for half and full tuition on a first come, first served basis. Classes are free at the M for Native community members. Contact or call (651) 797-2571 for more information.
