Lisa G. and other local songleaders lead weekly community singing classes on the Central Coast of California. These classes are held most of the year, open to the public, and require no experience.
The Wholehearted Chorus meets on Mondays & Wednesdays in the fall and spring. Tuesdays are a more intimate, restorative and devotional drop-in singing offering held in downtown Carmel.
Find details about each below, and check the Google calendar below for the most up-to-date information about current class offerings.

Songs of the Spirit
Songs of the Spirit is a drop-in class to soothe you and bring restoration to your heart! We learn by listening and focus on songs with healing & spiritual qualities. All voices are welcome.
Classes on the second Tuesday of each month are led by Lisa and all other classes are led by Cynthia Fernandes. Bring layers to be comfortable in our beautiful garden dome space, which can sometimes get a little chilly. We lock the door to the store at 6:30 but if you arrive late please text the number on the door and we’ll love to come get you!
These classes are offered for a drop-in of $10-20. No singer is ever turned away for lack of funds.
