Join in interactive singing games to reconnect to a euphoric sense of childhood freedom that singing can unveil.
Embrace the idea that EVERYONE can sing. Everyone has a right to sing. Singing is an essential part of who we are, how we express ourselves, and a tool to help us evolve into our fullest self.
