Words & Music at Home
Because music is a powerful, unifying tool—and because many of us are seeking inspiration and togetherness—we’ve created Words & Music at Home, an online extension of the Museum’s flagship music education program, Words & Music. By using the resources on this page, you can learn how to write your own original song lyric, and get tips on putting those ideas to music.
Family Art Gallery
