We need songs and songs need us, and there are perfect songs for times such as this. They are simple, meaningful, & powerful songs that you can learn easily and then carry with you through your days: songs to call and sing to a friend who’s lonely, sad, grieving; songs to comfort, to inspire, encourage; songs to sing to the trees and the creatures; songs for gratitude and joy.
Our ancestors knew that when we join our voices in song, something opens in the center that can hold us all. This is the fertile ground of community, and we can become the ancestors who can pass such a gift to our descendants!
Whether you’ve always loved to sing or always WANTED to sing, your voice is welcome here!
Materials fee: (To be collected directly from students by instructor in class): none
