Sue Trainor

Early Learning / Wolf Trap


Artist Statement

As a young person, I was captivated by the songwriting process. Musical jams with other kids were exuberant experiences. I wrote songs to help me absorb classroom learning and to express my feelings about the world around me. Creative time was focused and playful, challenging and collaborative. Today, we have a new understanding of brain function; we know that music and songwriting processes ARE profound for learning, communication, and interpersonal connection. For me, songwriting with young people is STILL an exuberant experience - focused and playful, challenging and collaborative – and deeply satisfying for me.
