Danny Tieger, PPP author of I Am Your Songwriting Journal, is currently performing as Michael Wormwood, Matilda’s older brother, in the traveling Broadway show Matilda the Musical, based on the classic children’s book by Roald Dahl.
When not on stage, Danny stays busy presenting mini songwriting workshops in bookstores across the country! He is pictured above with future songwriters at The Bookies bookstore in Denver, Colorado.
Packed with songwriting tricks, rhyming and writing prompts, and song worksheets, plus colorful, edgy illustrations by David Cole Wheeler, the Journal encourages kids to laugh, doodle, and get creative.
Says Danny, “Kids are eager to express themselves through music and they are capable of writing the most amazing songs.”
