Sing your way into spontaneous music compositions using your inherent musicality and internal music library. In this Singing Circle, we will create an evolving musical soundscape by building beautiful harmonies and interlocking rhythmic grooves in an open, supportive environment. We will start with what we know and then listen to where the music wants to go: unlocking creativity, listening for what comes next, saying “Yes” to what is happening in the moment, considering our options, collaborating with our partners, building a community that is in tune and in sync. The sheer joy of making music with others in this way can have a powerful impact on us — body, mind & spirit.
