KATE NASH Going Back To School To Launch Songwriting Campaign!

By on 21 March, 2011

British singer Kate Nash is launching a new programme in the U.K. to encourage schoolgirls to take up songwriting!

The Foundations chart-topper is concerned about the lack of emerging female music writers, and she’s spearheading the Rock and Roll After-School Music Club initiative in a bid to help nurture young talent.

Nash will even go back to her old school, Avonbourne Girls School in Bournemouth, UK, on Wednesday 23rd March 2011 to encourage pupils to take part!

Speaking to UK’s The Independent, she says:

“A lot of women in pop aren’t writing their own songs and there is this preconception that women are meant mainly as performers. A lot of people still ask me whether I write my own material, as if women are not capable of doing it. That is damaging to people’s reputation.

“It’s about showing people a path and saying: ‘You can totally do this’. It can be as simple as talking about what I’ve done. People need to be told they can be themselves; a little bit of encouragement; to be told that they are worth something.”
