I am starting a blog because I want to communicate what I am doing and thinking, primarily about singing. I am calling the blog Singing for Ourselves because this sums up my approach to singing: we do it for ourselves. Also, Singing for Ourselves is the name of an ever-evolving teaching format I have been using for many years, in which I give people the opportunity to sing in groups, and gently guide them to further enjoyment of singing. It is my belief that everyone can sing, and mostly we just want and need more opportunities to do it, not necessarily for an audience, but just for ourselves.
In the coming days I will be adding pages, which will give more information about my services as a leader of community singing. I will also add lyrics, music and pictures. I am very excited about finally having a site I can do myself, rather than relying on others to do my updating for me. This will be a gradual process, however, and for now, this is enough.
