What we're about
Come sing with us!
Everyone can SING! Singing is in our DNA. It is simply an extension of the spoken word, which is improvised most times that we open our mouths to speak.
We all have a unique soundprint. All of our voices are essential to the health of the planet, to each other, to all living things. Finding one's voice can be a lifelong journey. We have many offerings to help you discover or rediscover your true, natural voice. Some of our offerings are free jam style, some instructional in nature.
Reveal your natural voice! Learn to sing with ease. Tap into the music already inside you!
One of the main forms that we practice is called CircleSinging, which was invented by 10 time Grammy award winner (and the guy who wrote Don't Worry Be Happy), Bobby McFerrin. CircleSongs can be described as tribal, meditative and FUN medicine! It is different from song circles in that each song is an improvised A Cappella chorus / chant and done as a group. The group leader weaves the tapestry of motor, counterpoint, melody, harmony and rhythms. Within the group dynamic, opportunities for individual expression are encouraged but not required! We like to think of it as a "mistake-free zone." It's like painting with voices!
Singing and CircleSinging:
Promote deep self-expression.
Connects us to ourselves and others.
Creates a sacred space.
Unlocks an inner world of creativity.
Creates a sense of joy and oneness.
When we sing together our hearts align and beat as one - science says so!
