Share a weekend of singing, worship, and learning in community with Sylvia Miller-Mutia, David Poole, and Paul Vasile. Together we’ll explore the ancient and new practice of paperless (oral/aural tradition) music leadership, sharing songs as people did before music or words were written down.
– Learn leadership skills and strategies for sharing paperless songs in your community;
– Build a repertoire of songs that can be led with groups of varied ages and musical experiences;
– Worship and reflect in community, deepening into spaces of listening and
– Explore how the energy we create through singing affects what we do in worship as a whole, as well as other parts of our human lives. Music That Makes Community is a non-profit organization working with ecumenical communities and leaders to empower and liberate communities’ spiritual life through singing. For over ten years we have developed and shared music leadership practices grounded in a theology of welcome and generosity for the benefit of musicians, clergy, and lay leaders throughout the United States and Canada. Our hope is that Music That Makes Community offerings supplement and enhance what congregations already do, offering repertoire and leadership skills that support vibrant, communal music making.
