Do you love to sing? Are you looking for a different group singing experience? Are you new to singing and want to try? This group singing workshop is open to all levels of experience and is based on a group singing method used by Bobby McFerrin. Circle-singing is easy to learn and has endless possibilities since the melodies are made up ‘in the moment’ by the leader/s. It is a joyful way to sing together as a community without having to know how to read music! Jody will lead the group singing and will also teach different aspects of how to create an improvised ‘song’ to give singers who want to lead an opportunity to do so. There will be no pressure to lead if you don’t feel ready!
