Monte Selby

This We Believe Through Song:
The Songwriting Luncheon
Thursday, March 30, 2017

Lunch and songwriting? Yes! Come as you are, with songwriting experience or with “I don’t even sing in the shower” musical skills. Hocus Pocus, we will create a magical student-focused song that will be featured at the keynote general session on Friday. While having fun in this dynamic session, you will also gain some important insights into student engagement and This We Believe.
After lunch, you will be welcome to choose the songwriting breakout session where we’ll continue creating and editing the song. Even more fun? Monte will invite you to join the performance on Friday! There will be a role for you and everyone (no America’s Got Talent experience required). After the conference, Monte will record the song and make it available to conference attendees and NELMS.
