HSA is very excited to have the amazing, singer/songwriter/teacher in the greater Houston Area, Ken Gaines, to present his awesome workshop titled “THE POWER OF CONTRAST: What would light be without shades of darkness? The same applies to any art or craft. This seminar is designed to make the participants aware of and learn how to build contrast into individual songs as well as their entire body of work.” More information about Ken Gaines can be found on his website at
