In this relaxed and sociable series of workshops, you'll learn to sing in harmony—no sheet music or prior experience needed. Even if you may consider yourself a 'non-singer,' this perception can change,  as you ease yourself into it and find the physical and mental health benefits of singing with others. There is a welcoming environment that supports all skill levels, focusing on learning songs by ear and skipping technical jargon. Expect vocal and physical warm-ups for a fun and healthy singing experience. The workshop spans two hours, including a break.

May workshop: Melodies in Bloom, we will learn a Spring song and practice some of your favourite tunes. We will emphasise breathing. 
June workshop: Summer Solstice Harmonies, energizing songs to celebrate the longest day of the year.
July workshop: A summer soothing song and creative activity such as circle singing.
