WORKSHOPS

Sing-Along Series – all ages Gather your household and sing along to familiar favorites!  We will provide chords for some of the songs, so ukulele and guitar players can grab their instruments and join in the fun by strumming along! Register for the full 8-week series or Drop-In on your choice of dates.   (FYI – Sing-Alongs online are a little different than singing together in person.  Since it’s not possible to do video calls in which you can hear everybody else clearly, our Sing-Alongs will consist of teacher-led music, with participants muted and singing along at home.  It should be a fun experience, and perhaps your family might sing more freely with no one else listening!)
