*       Joy of HarmonyCathleen Wilder, Instructor. Bring your friends! Bring your family! Experience the joys of singing harmony together! In this fun-filled, skill-building class you will:

* Upgrade your musical "operating system" with skill-building exercises to learn parts faster, hold your part easier, hear your place in the chord better and tune more precisely.

* Learn rounds and two- and three- part harmonies to traditional songs

* Sing in large and small groups, as well as duos and trios (as desired)

* Discover the secrets to improvising harmonies

* Learn quickly in this fun, supportive environment

* Examine the life-lessons inherent in the harmony making process, including greater self-trust and deepening community connections.

A general ability to carry a tune is required. No music reading ability needed; emphasis is on learning by ear. Great for friends, couples and families with children 12 and up! This seven-week class will be held at Apple Mountain Music, 10301 Comanche Rd. NE in Albuquerque. Please call 505-237-2048 to reserve your place in the class. Saturday afternoons July 9 – August 20, 2016           4:00pm – 5:30pm           Fee: $75, drop-in $15
 

*       Sunday Sing-a-long with Dan Matthews - Albuquerque Folk Festival Fundraiser - Invite your friends and come out next Sunday for an afternoon of singing some well-loved folk songs and to support the Albuquerque Folk Festival! Dan Matthews has lead small sing-a-longs at a jam tent at AFF for many years and put together a posse to do a sing-a-long tribute to Pete Seeger in 2010 on a main stage. His formula is to pick familiar and very singable songs, put them in good keys, give people the lyrics (key ingredient) and sing and play loud so people will be less self-conscious and have permission to sing loud themselves. Think of three folk songs you like from the folk revival of the '50s and '60s-one of them will be on the list. Dan doesn't perform these days. His joy is singing with people not singing for people, whether it's a song circle or at the Albuquerque Folk Festival. Dan will be joined in this sing-a-long by his main singing sidekick Bill Foote and maybe Nancy Koenigsberg. This sing-a-long is a benefit for the Albuquerque Folk Festival and will be held at Apple Mountain Music, 10301 Comanche Rd NE in Albuquerque. Space is limited so come early!

Saturday afternoon July 30, 2016     2:00 - 4:00pm, doors open at 1:30pm       Suggested donation: $15 at the door
