Vocal Meditation

with Jane Lewis

Spend an hour tuning up and tuning in. We'll explore various relaxing sounding exercises as well as chants and simple songs. This group is intended to give you a sense of calm & grounding to get you through the week, along with the energetic lift that comes with vocalizing together in a group. Offered weekly! Payment is by donation ($10-15 suggested/pwyc), and you're welcome to join us each Monday, or on a drop-in basis.

Co-ed group
Monday afternoons, 12-1 pm.
From September 10 until Dec 10, 2018.
*NO group on Thanksgiving Monday.

Cost: $10-15 suggested donation.
Location: Silence, 46 Essex St., Guelph
Registration: No pre-registration necessary. You can email me so I have your contact information in case of schedule changes. Otherwise, just show up at silence *no later than noon* on the Monday of your choice.

Please note: parking on Essex Street is sometimes limited. There is room for 6 cars in the small lot in front of the silence building.

Circle Singing

with Jane Lewis & Joni NehRita

This is an opportunity to come together with a group and create joyful, spontaneous music! In this form, originally developed by Bobby McFerrin, you will be guided to sing and explore your voice in a non-judgmental singing circle. Through the process, you'll practice listening & memory skills, melody, harmony, and rhythm. It is a mistake-free zone! We encourage fun, and intend to leave you energized & invigorated. All levels of singers welcome.

Each date is a stand-alone event. Come to one or all of them! (You will need to pre-register, as there are limited spaces.)

Rise Up Singing — Women's "Choir" (8 Weeks)

with Jane Lewis and Katherine Wheatley

Experience the joy of making music together! This women's group will meet for eight weeks and sing a selection of songs (a mix of folk, traditional & modern), learning melodies and harmony parts. "Choir" is in quotation marks because we are more fun than formal. Our main goal is to sing lots, and to enjoy ourselves. No auditions, no performance, no reading music — we'll be learning by ear.

Women's group
Monday evenings, 7-9 pm, starting Jan 14, 2019 (Guelph) *full*
Tuesday evenings, 7-9 pm, starting Jan 15, 2019 (Guelph) *full*
