Mission Statement

Kid Pan Alley’s mission is to inspire creativity, build confidence, and foster community among children of all ages through the group songwriting process.


Founded 20 years ago, KPA provides hands-on group songwriting workshops for children of all ages: inspiring creativity, building confidence, and fostering community. Our professional teaching artists help students give voice to their own stories and listen to each other as they work together to turn their ideas into song lyrics and melodies.

To date, we've written over 2,700 songs with over 65,000 children across the country, from Virginia to Hawaii. KPA songs have been performed by major recording artists and we’ve won numerous awards - including two Parents’ Choice Gold Awards, a WAMMIE, and a Grammy nomination. You can learn more about us at www.kidpanalley.org and in this video: https://youtu.be/cdPl71fiJPY
