'Songwriting Essentials with Evangeline'
Evangeline, from age 11 to 18, was a member of
'The Urban Vocal Group' in Portsmouth.
'UVG' is a charity that provides young people will free opportunities to sing and perform at venues across the South of England as well as provide them with access to studio spaces to facilitate their passions for songwriting.
Evangeline holds this charity very close to her heart and says she has 'a lot to thank them for' in providing her with 'countless opportunities' to perform and fund her debut EP in 2018.
In April 2022, Evangeline returned to Hampshire as a guest performer at both the Havant and Portsmouth UVG sessions.
Inspiring many young, passionate musicians, she performed a few of her original tracks and conducted a
Q & A for the kids about all things music!
The overwhelmingly positive response to her session led to the UVG directors being flooded with requests for Evangeline to return and mentor some of the aspiring songwriters.
In May 2022, Evangeline was hired by 'The Portsmouth Guildhall Trust' put together an all day, songwriting workshop for the children of 'The Urban Vocal Group'.
She taught them some of the many different approaches to songwriting and helped them develop their skills in lyric writing, melody writing, arrangement and harmony.
The feedback was so positive from the attendees and Evangeline is soon to be putting together plans to mentor certain students in their songwriting development!
