Synopsis:

Music is often an extension of who youths are and how they view themselves in the world. Music Mirrors Me (MMM) is a therapeutic method of using existing songs to facilitate meaningful discussions. Engaging in song discussions can help youths relate to the experiences within a song. Lyric discussions can also help youths identify and express emotions in a more natural and comfortable way. The workshop will also share handy prompts youths can use in engaging in lyric discussions with their peers.
