Limited Capacity seats available

Lullabies are found all over the world, a universal expression of love from a parent to the child, bringing comfort and peace. Learn some lovely Russian, Chinese, Czech, Basque & French melodies in various modes, and some simple but effective accompaniment patterns. The goal is to create a soothing, repetitive pulse in the music that will create a calm place for the listener.
Paced for beginners, tunes will be on lead sheets. Basic two-hand coordination helpful but not necessary.
