Diversity means more than multi-culturalism. It extends to the differently abled – like members of The Dancing Wheels Company and School.

Director Mary Verdi-Fletcher, may be in a wheelchair, but her passion for dance, vision of possibilities, and sheer capability have created a company and school where thousands of children and adults with and without disabilities study and perform together.

Entertainment/Video: “A Jewish Girl Named Tex”

A song publisher once advised me to write story songs. He said that some of our favorite songs tell stories.  Audiences enjoy them,  and they’re hard to get!

I love stories, comedy, and writing challenges! I also  believe that if you can do something a bit unusual, you have a real advantage, so I was excited about taking a class in comedy songwriting at my favorite songwriting/performance camps (www.Summersongs.com ),  and Posi Music Festival at Empowerma.com in Orlando, Florida).

I wound up writing and performing my song “A Jewish Girl Named Tex” in many venues, including Summersongs concerts and New York City cabarets.    Please enjoy the video, and read on for a few thoughts about writing story songs and comedy.

Video: “A Jewish Girl Named Tex”


Sue Tex (2)1. What makes a great story?  One of the most important elements is a central character with a strong “want”.  Also, when a sympathetic character is unfairly mistreated and/or headed for trouble, we worry and want to know what comes next.   In “A  Jewish Girl Named Tex” the main character is abandoned by her parents, confused about her identity, and looking for love.  Sympathetic? You bet!)  The other important character – the impulsive mother – gets used and dumped by a no-goodnik, but she’s still “hopin’ for romance.”   What happens? The song takes you on a journey that answers these questions.

2. What makes something funny? Question #1 doesn’t sound funny – but it is, because comedy is rooted in pain – as long as it’s framed as comedy pain and uses comic writing/performing techniques. How do you do that?

To answer that question (plus questions about comic combos like Brooklyn girls and cowboys, song structure, rhyme, punch lines, audience participation, etc) , we need more than a short blog.   I invite all writers/performers (amateur and expert) to contact me for workshops in New York City, Online via Email, and at Summersongs.com and Posi Music Festival.

RickBassSueI also invite you to hear me sing  romantic songs & parodies in New York City and songwriting camps like Summersongs!  

Creative Living:

Do What You Love – and Be Part of a Community: I love writing and performing songs.  What do you love? Can you find a way to connect (via camps, conferences, meet-up groups, clubs, professional associations, etc.) that supports who you are. Chances are you’ll find more than feedback on your skills – you’ll find friends and community.

Creative Living:

Celebrate Your Life!  Comparing yourself to others who seem more fortunate (and we don’t usually know the inside story) creates unhappiness.  Change what you can (be bold), and if you cannot,  appreciate what you have!

Live Your Dream!: I love to sing, and the chance to sing with the world renowned Rick Bogart Jazz Trio is a dream.  If you have a dream, go for it!  If a door doesn’t open, try a window (of opportunity)!

Act As If: My radio host Donna Donna shared with me that when she started on the air, she wasn’t very good, so she imagined what a host whom she admired would do.  She acted “as if” she had his confidence, and as she got better, she did!  Nobody is born a successful media host, performer, athlete, author – or whatever you imagine yourself to be.  Keep improving your skills, get in the game, and act “as if”!
