Laena Myers-Ionita and Jason Heath from Jail Guitar Doors walk you through a writing exercise showing you how to use your words and personal story to write a song. Everyone has a story and we build common ground when we share them. Choose a topic like love, family or struggle and write about it. Find a selective scribe who will choose a line to be added to the lyrics.

Music brings people together in a powerful way. This video walks you step by step through the exercise of songwriting.
