Helen Demong will lead the Songwriting Workshop for the CHC Women’s Veteran’s Weekend.  As a breast cancer survivor, she had the good fortune to experience the Adirondack Arts and Healing Retreat. She grew up in an Army family and learned first hand some of the challenges men and women who serve in the military experience.  Graduating from the Crane School of Music in 1976, she has brought music to the lives of countless students and families in Saranac Lake as Music Educator and Choir Director.  Helen has experience working with a cross section of mainstream and special needs students as well as collaborating with other artists, teachers, and community leaders in Arts Integration Projects.  Her professional philosophy has been to be a teacher and her vehicle has been music.  Music can be a powerful source of inner joy, peace and healing.Helen Demong
