The Ridgefield Playhouse is Offering Scholarships for its Songwriting with Kevin Briody Workshop

Do you have a poem or words in your head that you think would make a great song?  The Ridgefield Playhouse can help – no songwriting experience necessary and you don’t even have to play an instrument!  The Ridgefield Playhouse is offering scholarships for teens and adults who would like to learn Songwriting with world-class musician Kevin Briody.  The class meets on Wednesdays from 7:30 – 9:00 p.m., February 13 – April 3. Emmy Award-winning Musician Kevin Briody will teach you how to structure songs, create “hooks,” craft lyrics, manipulate melody, rhythm and harmony, merge words with music, and write toward genre. Whether you’re a fan of pop, rock, hip-hop, R&B, country, music, lyrics, or both, he’ll show you how to write songs that soar! 

The Beth and Bruce Becker Scholarship Fund, which was established in memory of Playhouse Board of Directors members Beth and Bruce Becker, funds educational programs that allow children and adults to take classes that foster participation in the performing arts. Avid music lovers and patrons of the arts, the Beckers embraced The Playhouse’s mission and philosophy of making the arts more accessible in a very tangible way with this funding.  Tuition for this eight-week workshop, taught by Emmy Award-winning singer/songwriter Kevin Briody, is $425. Aspiring songwriters who cannot afford the tuition are encouraged to apply for a Beth and Bruce Becker Scholarship by emailing Julie Paltauf at This email address is being protected from spambots.
