Songleading

My definition of songleading: Building community through music – that is, singing together in a group. I truly believe and live by this definition, and it keeps me going through the rocky toss and tumble of the music biz and life in general.

Really: One of the most important things we can do together is sing – make music – change the vibrations in the world around and inside.

More on this coming soon…

Commissioned by Foundation For Jewish Camp (FJC).

As Songleader and Music Educator on Faculty at FJC’s Cornerstone Fellowship, I write a song each year that Cornerstone Fellows (outstanding third year bunk camp counselors) bring back to their camps. The song encapsulates the vibe and values we embrace. Enjoy!

A guitar breaks the ice!

OK, not a song session. But I carried this guitar (strapped to my backpack) through the Himalayas (2005), learned Nepali folk songs along the way, and shared many smiles over Bob Marley tunes.
