It’s not too late to sign up for Emmy Award-winning singer/songwriter Kevin Briody’s Songwriting Class, which starts on Thursday, January 3, from 7 – 8 p.m. for 8th graders thru high school students at The Ridgefield Playhouse. In this eight-week program, which runs thru February 28, aspiring songwriters will learn how to structure ideas and develop melody, lyrics and instrumentation. At the end of the workshop, students will get a recording of their songs. Tuition is $120. Email Allison@ridgefieldplayhouse.org about a Bruce Becker Scholarship, given in memory of past Board member Bruce Becker. This class is being offered with support from The Janis and Alan Menken Foundation.

A resident of Connecticut and two-time Emmy Award-winner, Kevin Briody was the Official State Troubadour from 2000–2002 and has been selected by the Connecticut Commission on Culture & Tourism as a Master Teaching Artist. An internationally recognized singer and songwriter who has shared the stage with artists ranging from Art Garfunkel to Aimee Mann, Briody took home his first Emmy in 2008 for Best Original Song, “Little Starr”, which earned Briody a BMI Film & Television Award. In 2009, “We All Fall Down” won a second Emmy in the Best Original Song category. Autism Speaks, a national organization combating autism, commissioned him to write the song “Bring Them Back” to help raise awareness about autism. A recording star in his own right, Briody has released five CDs.
