The Hylton Center’s Veterans and the Arts Initiative kicks off its Ukulele Workshop Series and Songwriting Series for Military Kids this month, and there’s still time to register!

Reserve your spot now for the Ukulele Workshop Series on Tuesday evenings (9/14 – 10/26). This workshop is FREE to Veterans, Servicemembers, military family members, and military caregivers. Musicians of all skill levels are invited to participate in-person or online in seven weeks of workshops with Glen McCarthy, instructor at the Mason Community Arts Academy and at George Mason University. If you have always wanted to sing and play the ukulele - but aren't feeling quite ready, get great tips on how to improve your singing technique and your confidence in a November 2 bonus workshop on Zoom! The bonus workshop will be co-led by Adiza Jibril, professional singer with The United States Army Band “Pershing’s Own.”

Looking for creative activities for military kids and teenagers? Look no further than George Mason University's Fairfax campus where Songwriting Series for Military Kids (9/26 – 10/31) will take place in-person. This six-week series brings students together to learn songwriting skills in a collaborative, safe environment. Participants do not need to be advanced singers or musicians to join this program. This workshop series is FREE and open to military kids between the ages of 10 and 17. Space is limited.

Registration is required to participate in these workshops so register today for the Ukulele Workshop Series and/or the Songwriting Series for Military Kids.
