"I've got a voice, it's the only one I know,
so I tap in and sing from my soul."
I believe everyone can sing! Everyone, and that includes you.
My mission as a songleader is to bring people together through singing to create connection, inspire resilience, and spark joy.
I know singing heals and transforms. I have seen the magic when someone shares their voice for the first time in decades and rediscovers the joy of singing. I've felt chills when a group finds harmony and revels in the sound created when many voices become one. I believe singing is a way to accentuate life when we feel abundant and sustain us when we feel challenged.
I always feel better when I sing and I would love to hear your voice. Even if you believe you can't sing, even if it's been years, even if you're uncomfortable singing in front of other people, and especially if someone has ever told you not to sing.
Sing anyway! Tap in to your voice and let's start singing.
A community song circle simply for the joy of singing!
Uplifting songs, rounds, and rhythms shared in the oral tradition
All voices welcome

Finding Your Musical Home
Have you always wanted to be one of the folks who pull out an instrument and transform a campfire or lazy afternoon into musical magic? You can! Really! I work with people who long to sing or make music but believe they aren't musical. Let's put those beliefs in the corner, pick up a ukulele or guitar, and begin. We'll get you humming and/or strumming right away!
