    The fee is $20. Bring sheet music, guitar, sing a capella. Whoever wants to will sing individually no requirements.

      Ellen, where can we buy sheet music and how can we tell if it's in our key? Haven't got a clue. I don't even know what key I sing in. I open my mouth, sound comes out. I don't know what it's called.

      Can anybody play the sax, piano and drums like this? This is what I yell (not sing, mind you) every morning before I hop in the shower to get me going :-)

    I am absolutely terrified by the thought of singing in front of people. I have no training, I play no instruments and don't claim to have any particular vocal talent. I just love music and enjoy singing along to to songs that move me. I'm guessing the rest of you are pretty talented and that makes this even more terrifying.

      Darryl -- Ditto what Thomas said. I've take several workshops as well as individual classes with Ellen. This is definitely the place for you. Anyone who can carry a tune in a hand basket, which is most people, will benefit from a session or many sessions with Ellen. It's the right place for you. Do you sing in the shower? Sing along with radio? That's enough to get started.

    I wish I could be there. I have enjoyed one of Ellen's workshops in the past and had hoped she would continue. Please keep it up, Ellen--and everyone really. Hopefully, I will be able to join you all in the future.

  • Agnes

    Is this meetup going on? This may sound ridiculous, but if there is no venue, how about karaoke? (Have never tried it and, even if it's a bit hokey, it looks like fun. Any ideas?)
