Write your own Protest Song


Music has always been present in protest, whether it’s the American Civil Rights movement, anti-war marches, or public demonstrations and rallies. Take inspiration from protest music around the world and write your own protest song, armed with just a few chords and simple, clear lyrics.

Show us what you’ve been creating!

We’d love to see how you’re using the resources and lessons to make music at home. If you’ve used our videos and activities to write a song, learn a new instrument, make a playlist, or if they’ve inspired you musically in other ways, please tag us in any social media posts you’ve made sharing this content, or use the hashtag #tolboothworkshops
