Special Sessions with Hear Your Song at EOS Connection 2022
Hear Your Song is a nonprofit that empowers young people with serious illnesses and complex health needs to share their stories, perspectives, and voices through collaborative songwriting. Their volunteers will lead two songwriting sessions at EOS Connection 2022 for kids ages 8-18. No prior songwriting or music experience is required!
Do you or your child want to write a song and hear it come to life? Children ages 8-18 can participate in one of these special sessions either onsite in San Diego or virtually, from anywhere!
You can write a song can be about ANYTHING you want: your favorite thing to do with your family, a challenge you have overcome, the best TV show in the world, noodles, slime, camp, the power of hope, the Periodic Table— we can’t wait to hear your song!

We take your child’s safety and privacy in our virtual sessions very seriously. Hear Your Song will never record the image, video, or voice of any child without the advance written permission of a guardian. Hear Your Song will only share your child’s song and words with the written permission of a guardian.
Hear Your Song’s volunteers are professional musicians/educators and undergraduate leaders at its’ campus-based chapters.
