SCL SongArts invites all SCL members to join the listening sessions of our third global collaboration exercise in songwriting for TV. As we celebrate the opening of our Nashville chapter, this exercise unlocks vast reach and diversity through musical collaboration between our many members worldwide.

Participants were paired with another SCL composer and/or lyricist and asked to write a song appropriate for a kid’s TV show. All SCL members are welcome to join our live-streamed listening sessions where each entry will be reviewed and critiqued by a music supervisor.
