Play More! A Stand and Sway Gathering on Orcas Island
Play More!  A Stand and Sway Gathering - June 9th noon  4pm*    
Singing, songwriting, group shenanigan workshop for everyone.

Trying something new, creative, personal can be some of the bravest work youll ever do. And we believe that the best way to coax out ideas, songs, words, whatever might in there takes a thoroughly supportive environment and permission to just try already.

We dont teach people how to sing. Or write. Or perform.  We help people remember how to play. Come to a workshop where well play together.


Write group poetry. Its strange and silly and surprisingly fun.

Make up songs. Well approach songwriting from new angles, and if youve never done it, well give you some ideas to get you going.

Do some creative unlocking. Well do some talking about why and where and how we get stuck. And well give you some tools to dig up that stuff and give you permission to start where you are.

Sit still. We think this alone is worth the price of admission. What happens when we do that is things float to the surface. Well help you catch that stuff with a net, usually in the form of a piece of paper.

Sing, like nobodys listening. OK well be listening, but well be doing it together. Off key, on key, loudly, softly, together, and solo if you feel ready. Well do it in a non-religious, non-performance, non-take yourself too seriously environment. Because singing is the most fun and if you can talk, you can sing. We promise.
