As sometimes happens when planning awesome workshops and events … we were not able to make this 4-week workshop happen in June. So, what we have decided to do is hold a one-off workshop on June 23 – so that kids can meet Derek and learn how fantastic he is and how much fun we will have writing a song together – and then we will hold a 4-week workshop in July. For more info on the workshop on June 23, click here.


Date: 4 Tuesdays – June 9, 16, 23, 30
Time: 3:00 to 4:00 am
Price: $75 or $100 per family
Ages: 8 to 12

In this 4 week workshop, we will write a song with Derek McKinley from Sing Song Party Time. The kids will write the lyrics and Derek will put a melody to them. Then we will all perform the song together and record it so the kids can keep it and share it. We can also talk about including the kids’ instruments and even things they create on DAWS. There are no rules! We will build something awesome together.

The workshop will take place through Zoom. The meeting link will be emailed to participants the day of the workshop.


You will notice that we have listed two ticket prices for this 4 week workshop – $75 or $100 per family. I use this two ticket format when I am running a workshop with a guest. When I invite a guest to a workshop, I want to make sure that they are fairly compensated, so I split the revenue from a shared workshop 50/50. But I also want to be sensitive to our participants’ needs right now.

With this two ticket format, families can self-select the ticket price that works best for them in this current time. We know that a lot of people are experiencing financial hardship right now, and we want to be empathetic, compassionate and accommodating to that. But we also know that there are others who are less affected financially right now and are looking for ways to help our local artists, organizations, community builders and businesses. We thought that this two ticket price system was a fair way to balance all this. Please select either price, without any guilt or fear of judgement. And, if $75 is not possible at this time, but you really want to attend, please email us at worldchangingkids@gmail.com and we can work something out!
