Music Mentorships

We launched our first Music Mentorship program in 2019 with Kickstart Arts' current Artist in Residence and nationally renowned singer songwriter Christopher Coleman. 

Six upcoming singer songwriters spent a month each working with Christopher writing new material and developing their craft.  They spent their final session in a recording studio at Kickstart Arts to record a demo of the song.
