Learn to sing and play (guitar, ukelele) traditional Guiding songs from around the world with Edmonton Area Trainers Marion Rex and Dawn Nowicki. The best way to learn is by doing-learning to sing and play with others. Learn songs for Sparks, Brownies, Guides, Pathfinders and Rangers.
All you need to bring is your singing voice and your guitar or ukelele if you want to strum along (but not necessary). The music will be pre-selected and provided at each session and you will create a songbook that you can keep adding materials to. If you plan to bring an instrument, please plan to arrive 15 minutes early so everyone can tune up.
