Glen has performed at community events, libraries, and schools throughout his career. His “Young People of the World” is published and distributed worldwide in many elementary school textbooks. Glen has developed the following Legacy programs that will engage Minnesotans of all ages and allow them opportunities to get involved in creativity, innovation, and artistic expression.
- The Art & Tradition of Songwriting: In this workshop, Glen shares the development process of producing a song with children and families. Beginning with the inspiration for the lyrics, composing the music, and ultimately recording a song – this program will give audiences an inside perspective on the musical recording process. To best describe the songwriting and recording process – Glen compares the steps in the production of recording a song with the art form of painting a picture, in which an artist begins with an initial sketch; then adds colors and various tools to enhance the picture and create the final work. Audience: Children and Families
- The Legacy of a Song: This program will truly leave your guests with a lifelong legacy and an opportunity to contribute one’s voice! During the Legacy of a Song, Glen will share music from his “Young People of the World” album and teach one song to the families in attendance. As a bonus, the song will be recorded LIVE at the event! The recording will be available for participants to receive their own copy. This use of technology will extend the reach, effectiveness, and impact of the program within your community. Audience: Children and Families
- Acoustic Guitar Lessons: Glen Everhart is also an accomplished guitarist and musician. This program allows you to offer basic acoustic guitar lessons and tips for mastering this amazing instrument. This program is best implemented as an Artist-in-Residence series, allowing your guests and community members opportunity for multiple sessions throughout a particular time period. The program can also be combined with other programs to enhance outreach. Audience: Teens and Adults, maximum of 20 people per session.
