Deep River of Song
Building a Village – One Singing Circle at a Time
I want to share something powerful with you.
Anyone can make music. Yes, anyone.
There’s a saying from Zimbabwe.
If you can walk, you can dance,
if you can talk, you can sing.
You know what? It’s true.
But today, most of us have lost touch with this truth, and in doing so, we’ve lost something of great value.
You see, songs, singing, making music in community… These things nourish the soul. But it is more than this. Making music together connects us to the human continuum. The songs are our inheritance. When we sing them, we let in a great, life giving power— the universal power of music. My class offerings are designed to help you connect to this power– to draw out your own inner musician, so that you can experience the joy of music making in community.
This work is my calling, and I’ve dedicated my life to developing the expertise to do it. I draw on forty-three years of experience as a singer, twenty plus years as a songwriter, nine years as a Waldorf-trained educator, and twelve years as a student of the world’s spiritual traditions.
Here’s what I’ve got cooking, currently!
Noe’s Garden is a nature inspired music class for children aged 0 – 5 and their caregivers. We meet indoors and outdoors in the city’s scenic parks, and we even have an online version of the class, so you can sing along from your living room! Try your first class for free with code RAINSPRITE. Learn more.
My intergenerational women’s singing circle meets weekly to explore singing as a wellbeing practice. We make beautiful music, we get to know each other deeply, and we have a whole lot of fun! No prior singing experience required. If this interests you, check out Mothersong Chorus.
For those who want to deeper, I work one on one with people of all ages to help you tap into the universal power of music. Whatever your interest in music making, sessions with me offer a safe, nurturing space to explore.
So come on down with me…
There’s a group of us gathering nearly every day of the week to visit a place I call the Deep River of Song. You’ll sing, listen, move, play, laugh and leave uplifted. Because when we lift our voices in this way, we lift each other up too.
In Love and Music,
