The “Summer Songwriting Workshop” is open to ages 12-17, requires students to have some prior experience in piano, voice or guitar lessons, and costs $150 per student. To provide the best experience, the number of spots in each session is limited and filled on a first come, first served basis. Registration/payment may be made online at hallpiano.com/summer-camps.
