Use sound and singing to connect with ourselves, our histories, our environment and each other.
Explore psychoacoustics to help us sing mindfully in the moment.
Deeply listen to be inspired by the art of song.
Experiment with composition to find the song within us.
Explore the phenomena of melody within the world around us.
