New series! Singing Outside the Shower / by Melanie Ida Chopko

What folks are sayin: "Singing songs with Melanie brought everyone back to being kids around the campfire.  Her playful and joyful nature lit up the room.  I want more!" - Brad

Happy New Year, creative family!

First, gratitude! I'm so grateful to all of you who bought prints this fall - after I sent up a flare for support, October ended as one of fullest months of projects, drawings and collaborations I've ever experienced. It was a stunning testimony to me of the power of vulnerability and community. Thank you! I wrote more on this on my blog

After a rousing Christmas sing-along a few weeks ago, I"m even more passionate about inviting adults to create music together. The new series of my adult beginner's class, Singing Outside the Shower, starts thisThursday, January 7th for 8 weeks (you can hop on next week, too)  It's a class created for all secret-car-singers, instrumentalists and people who think they can't sing. The first class is free, and there's more info, here!

And, in the spirit of asking for support, Are there people in your life who want to sing more? Can you send them my way? Thanksies so much! A Fridaymorning and kids songwriting class is waiting in the wings. 

And, songs!

And, finally, I'm laying down stones for my record making this winter/spring, here is a Pencil Draft peak of the project. Enjoy!

Love,
Melanie

And, in case I haven't told you one on one, I'm totally in love.
