About Us

STYLE ignites a passion for reading in students that will last a lifetime. Impacting students’ ways of thinking and working while giving them new tools and skills in everyday life.

Our Programs

STYLE is a wonderful way to spark interest in reading and literature through the magic of music. STYLE Teaching Artists can deliver an in-school residency or a power packed assembly that will result in an original song inspired by a popular book.

Our Mission

Igniting students’ passion for literature through collaborative songwriting education.

What To Expect When STYLE Comes To Your School

Create A Song Inspired By A Book

Our STYLE Teaching Artists will come to your school and spend a week-long residency with your language arts classes. Students will discuss and analyze a book already in your school’s curriculum and then collaborate to write and record an original song inspired by the book.

Spark Creativity Through Communication And Collaboration

Designed using the Common Core State Standards and 21st Century Skills, students work in Songwriting Circles® to write their own verse inspired by a book already in your curriculum.

Record Your Song In A Professional Studio Environment

STYLE brings students’ learning to life by providing a professional recording engineer and studio setup brought to your school. Students experience being in a studio and come away with a professional recording that will last a lifetime. When students place the headphones over their ears, they experience the magic of the studio.

We would love to come to your school! Get in touch!

The plans reflect the group’s commitment to the Common Core State Standards. This was the most impressive part of the program – the teaching artists truly modeled, scaffolded, and assessed extended book talk for the students.

The STYLE Program brought to life challenging concepts like theme, rhyme scheme, revision and collaboration. Students were engaged, pushed to step out of their comfort zone, proud of what they accomplished, and wished the experience lasted longer. As a teacher, I was able to authentically join my students in a creative process and see them through a lens that was priceless.
