This summer Arts Corps is sponsoring teaching artist and songwriter Kelli Frances Corrado to teach free weekly private guitar lessons at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center. The program is from July 9 to August 31, 2018, and is for teens and young adults (age 12 to 21) from the greater Seattle area who come from low income households and cannot afford private lessons on their own. Youth who do not own a guitar and will be provided with one they can use and take home. They may also be eligible to keep the guitar if they continue lessons for a year after completing the summer program. This is an opportunity for up to 6 teens to receive high-quality arts instruction to support their artistic and creative development.

Kelli Frances Corrado has been teaching for over 10 years, specializing in helping the beginner start. Growing up in Chicago, she would sneak out during school nights to see hip hop shows and spend weekends with her Czech grandmother learning prayer rituals. This set a unique musical foundation giving voice to her spiritual beliefs and leading her to study guitar, piano, voice and beat making. She received her first grant from The Grammy’s who sponsored her first tour and has had her music featured with NPR’s Radio One, KEXP, BBC6 radio, Tom Tom Magazine, The Girls Are…, The Stranger and Seattle Weekly.
