Making Music Together with Nathan Brenowitz

Friday, September 23, 2016 @ 6:30pm
If you have never played or used to play or currently play an instrument at any level and want to make music together, this workshop is for you. Going in many directions, we will learn exciting simple rhythms and fit melodies to those beats. We will break up into smaller groups and create harmonious ensembles. Along the way there will be an opportunity to learn about scales and write your own songs even if you never played an instrument. Some instruments will be provided or please feel free to bring your own!

Helen Decker is a poet and teacher. The recently published Coyitito and the Stars is her debut as a novelist. The night sky over the Catskill Mountains – and the ocean stars are her muses. Coyitito is a story of conquering fear, discovering courage; hope, horses, the ocean and the stars. The River of Life and Hope courses through the novel.
