Compose Your Classic With SAB

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 1, 2017) – Have you ever wanted to write your own music? Now you can. Join the Student Activities Board at its Songwriting Workshop. Students can come to the Creative Arts Studio in Holmes Hall at 6 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 2, to learn the process of writing a song. Songwriting is a great medium for self-expression and stress relief.

Leading the workshop is songwriter and vocalist Gus Reeves, a Seattle-based musician and songwriter, who is coming to UK to inspire and teach students. Reeves' music inspirations includes R&B, hip hop, rock, folk, country, Americana, and classical. He has created original music as well. This workshop will give students the opportunity to begin developing the skill of songwriting or continue to further their knowledge on the art.

“I've wanted to provide students with a new workshop that helps develop a skill that is not taught on a day to day basis,” said Jess Loflin, SAB director of Concerts. “I personally love songwriting and want to share my love for the art with other students.”

SAB brings more than 60 entertaining, educational and enriching programs that are reflective of contemporary issues and trends to the University of Kentucky annually. These programs are designed to enhance the college experience for students, faculty, staff and the greater Lexington community.
