Just Imagine...

Kid Pan Alley’s mission is to inspire and empower children to work together to become creators of their own music and to rekindle creativity as a core value in education through the group songwriting process.

To date, we've written over 2,700 songs with over 60,000 children across the country from Virginia to Hawaii. The songs are a sophisticated and powerful world-view as seen through the eyes of the children.  Our songs have been recorded by artists including Amy Grant, Sissy Spacek, Delbert McClinton, Cracker, Kix Brooks, Nashville Chamber Orchestra, Corey Harris, Suzy Bogguss and many others. We’ve won numerous awards including Parents’ Choice Gold Awards, a WAMMIE, and have received a Grammy nomination for one of our recordings.

Just Imagine that you are a child and your class writes a song with a professional songwriter … and that song is recorded by a world-class recording artist. You’d be changed forever – seeing yourself as a creator, not just a consumer of popular culture.

In addition to all the things you’d learn about creative writing, music, performance and the subjects you are writing about, you’d learn about teamwork, embracing diversity, collaboration and you’d discover a self-confidence you didn’t know you had.
