Finding Your Voice: Comedy Songwriting with Seann Cantatore

Writing a song can be daunting. Writing a funny song can be even daunting-er. In this workshop, musical comedian Seann Cantatore will break down the elements of comedy songwriting into a few simple steps, and then we’ll get right into the fun part. Each student will develop their own comedy song using improv, storytelling and their unique voice. You’ll be surprised by what you’re capable of creating in a short amount of time! And the class is there to support and collaborate with you along the way. If you enjoy utter silliness, this is the workshop for you. No need to be a trained singer or instrumentalist! Musical and vocal technique is gorgeous, but it is not a prerequisite for this workshop.

About the instructor: Seann Cantatore is an NYC-based musical comedian, absurdist, and professional kind person who combines musical characters, sketch comedy and utter ridiculousness in her gorgeously entertaining shows. Seann believes in humor that welcomes everyone to the party and seeks to bring people together through laughter and song. With her whimsical wit and inviting presence, you’ll feel right at home belly-laughing or confronting your deepest emotional vulnerabilities at her live shows. Seann has performed throughout New York, Washington DC, Michigan, California and recently returned from a SouthEast solo comedy tour! She is currently recording a new musical comedy album and performing her solo musical comedy variety show throughout NYC and the U.S.
