Annie’s Hope Bereavement Center for Kids provides comprehensive support services for children, teens and their families who are grieving the death of someone significant. Beat Therapy volunteers spend a few hours at a retreat for teens to write and record music. Volunteers facilitate the songwriting process as an expressive, healing tool.
Volunteers should have some musical knowledge, but a range of experience is accepted!
In the past we have created songs using
- Voice (singing/spoken word)
- Solo instruments (flute, violin, etc.)
- Handheld percussive instruments
- As well as music recording and production equipment
Songwriting retreats happen once or twice each semester on Saturday evenings. Sign-ups are sent out through the Beat Therapy email list and are based on a first come-first serve basis.
