~ Youth Empowerment through Songwriting ~

Are you a parent of an overwhelmed teenager?

As your child grows from adolescence to adulthood they may feel like their life is going in 100 directions at once. There are so many changes happening all around them and it can be hard to keep up with everything that’s thrown their way! If this sounds familiar, don’t worry. There are effective strategies and tools out there which will help rekindle the bond between parents & teenagers during such challenging times.

Emma G has helped hundreds of families just like yours reconnect through her songwriting workshops, retreats, and online courses. The Youth Empowerment through Songwriting program focuses on helping young people find their voice by writing songs about what matters most to them – whether it’s family relationships or feelings about school or friends – award-winning youth worker Emma G has seen first-hand how powerful music can be for healing those difficult struggles and facilitating in healthy conversations. Join today to empower young adult through songwriting!

It is no secret that being a parent in this day and age can be difficult, but it’s even harder when your child suffers from post-pandemic trauma. From isolation due to fears that society has around COVID to the changes brought on by evolving bodies through adolescence into adulthood; there are many challenges for parents today.

As our youth try to make sense of the overwhelm and mixed messages in their heads, they struggle to make good and healthy decisions. One on one coaching is an effective method for these young people as it helps them to process their stress and transform negative self-talk and overwhelm into affirmative lyrics and action while also being empowered through creativity.
One on one coaching is one of the most effective ways to help young people – as our youth struggles to make sense of the overwhelming mixed messages in their heads, and therefore struggles to make good, healthy and empowering decisions that will benefit them long-term. Through songwriting coaching, your child can transform negative self-talk and overwhelm into affirmative action while also being empowered through creativity.

Imagine your child gaining the ability to effectively calm themselves and communicate in a healthy way.

Imagine grades being better than before, as their emotions are no longer overwhelming them.

Imagine restoring a relationship with your teenager without them constantly having an emotional breakdown every time you try talking with each other about something important that has happened recently.

Re-establishing a healthy relationship without any aggressive kickback is possible.

If you’re wondering if your teenager can become more confident and independent with music, I want to tell you it’s possible. It may sound too good to be true; but over 10 years as a professional coach in this field has led me to discover an effective and proven strategy for teenagers that makes them feel better about themselves whilst successfully rekindling their relationship with you. It is no secret that being a parent in this day and age can be difficult, but it’s even harder when your child suffers from post-pandemic trauma.

WHO AM I?

To give you a bit of background on me: I was an award-winning youth empowerment coordinator at the YMCA, Auckland back in New Zealand.

My name is Emma G. I am a musician, author, speaker, and youth empowerment coach who has had a lifelong battle with hydrocephalus: a neuro condition that has resulted in 10 brain surgeries.

I’m on a mission to save the world one song at a time by writing music of healing, strength, love and truth. I’ve endured 24 surgeries in total for my condition which has helped me realize that singing my truth is powerful and effective tool for not only understanding and processing my trauma, but also connecting with audiences who may be experiencing struggles. My goal is to inspire others through this project so they can heal just like I have!

I am excited to work with your child and help them find their voice.

“So many of my students have been talking about the power of having you teach your magical songwriting process. They LOVED it!! “To quote my supervisor who happened to be in the Zoom room when one of my ninth graders premiered an original song she wrote called “Trailblazer” that chronicled her middle school challenges, “what the students demonstrated was profound”. You have a superpower, Emma G. Thank you for helping my music students channel their emotions, fears, dreams and higher selves through the power of songwriting. In a year that was full of disappointments, your influence in these teenagers’ lives had a huge and positive impact”

It was really fun. I really liked it. Even though we learned basics - it was fun learning what to do with syllables, rhyme, and how you can make a song fit and flow. The entire process was very cathartic - especially writing the last song. I felt like I could express myself - getting the lyrics out and not having it clanging it around in my head. I was able to start taking steps to overcome my overwhelm and be less anxious. I learned about how repetition and breathing can help. Also remembering that things aren’t as big a big deal as they might seem - reminding yourself to just do it again and again until you’re more comfortable and you realize it’s not as scary as you made it out to be in your head. I learned to approach problems as if they were people, so I could approach them from a place of understanding and love instead of judgment. So I could fix them. I learned about box breathing, visualizations and different ways to approach how to write a song. [Emma G] was pushing me to be more direct with my lyrics, which was helpful to distill my thoughts. Almost like a practice to talking with people in person.

On July 28, 2021 I had the pleasure of moderating a Q and A discussion of the Canadian Premiere of Emma G's documentary Born in Crisis. The film is an empowerment vehicle for women, particularly women of color. Emma G is raw, real, and refreshing. Her words, her experiences, her songs truly speak to one's soul. You cannot help feeling empowered as when she speaks, it feels like she is speaking directly to you and your situation. She gets it. She is it. Watch her documentary and close your eyes and listen to her lyrics as they will move you. I have watched my 17-year-old daughter bloom into a confident singer-songwriter with an amazing album debuting soon.
What she got from Emma was permission to be her full empowered self, live into her dreams, and take inspired action. Thank you Emma!

The song writing workshop with Emma G was a huge success. I was very apprehensive on how this would be engaging over zoom, during a pandemic, but Emma G was able to capture the attention of all participants and keep us engaged throughout the duration of the workshop. Emma G allowed participants to be creative and asked engaging and thought provoking questions where participants were able to draw from their own experiences to create the start of a wonderful song. Being able to listen to various beats and list out thoughts and emotions that you felt while listening helped the group get to a great end product. Emma G also was able to share some of her personal experiences with the group which opened up the groups ability to be vulnerable and open to sharing past experiences with new individuals. I would recommend this workshop 10/10

Emma G's work is nothing short of miraculous. I have watched my 17-year-old daughter bloom into a confident singer-songwriter with an amazing album debuting soon. When Sydney started working with Emma, all she had was experience in her school chorus, a journal filled with her thoughts, feelings and slam poems, and a big dream. Emma taught her how to translate her writings into songs, and inspired her to write the music. Sydney has not had any formal training yet now her natural talent is shining through. What she got from Emma was permission to be her full empowered self, live into her dreams, and take inspired action. Thank you Emma! You have a superpower, Emma G. Thank you for helping my music students channel their emotions, fears, dreams and higher selves through the power of songwriting. In a year that was full of disappointments, your influence in these teenagers’ lives had a huge and positive impact

To be honest, I never expected for me to be able to write lyrics to a song. I never expected that I would come to class today with verses and a chorus of a song that I fully wrote. My goal was a dream very very far away from me, and I had in mind that I would just attempt. But coming here to class, with a page full of lyrics, I am surprised of myself. I am shocked that I could do this and I feel accomplished that I did this. In the very beginning, I was lost. I had a topic, but I had did not know how to start, so I went to class and asked to work with her. She put all my thoughts and concepts into words with me, so I was able to start revising with a completed rough draft. And probably, if it wasn't for Emma G, I still would not have lyrics. I am proud that I was also able to voice my feelings and concerns into written lines that rhyme. I never knew how this would be such an accomplishment. But first day in, I learned how important it was to write something I cared about. My lyrics are true to me and they express how I feel - and I am proud that I could convey that.
