The mission of Girls Write Nashville is to empower the expression through songwriting, modernized music education, and creative mentorship and community building. Started in 2016 as a Metro Art’s funded THRIVE community project, Girls Write Nashville has since grown into a successful and recognized growing music education nonprofit with an appearance on NBC’s Today Show, over 200 students served last year, and over 50 youth written and produced songs released to the world.
Students in Girls Write Nashville, and our online co-educational wing Loudmouth Community Music, learn about songwriting and production and are guided through the process of writing and recording original songs by a professional teaching artist within a supportive community of their peers. Girls Write Nashville utilizes original curriculum from its musician/educator co-founders to create a community-driven educational program that boasts a variety of exciting outcomes. Students receive a unique and world-class music education designed to be relevant and equitable in the modern era, and boost linguistic empowerment, leadership skills, social emotional learning and confidence building. Students also receive four of the seven Positive Childhood Experiences available outside the home that are shown to increase resiliency in the face of trauma: having at least two non-parent adults who show an interest in them, enjoying participating in community traditions, feeling supported by friends, and feeling a sense of belonging in school. Girls Write Nashville is proud to be one of the few music programs with program structure and curriculum designed from the ground up specifically to promote the values of equity, accessibility, and empowerment.
Operating out of our Metro Center main office, Girls Write Nashville serves Davidson County through an “all-city” program as well as several afterschool programs in MNPS Title I schools. The organization also serves students nationwide through low cost online classes.
