Flight School is an amazing tool for anyone wanting to explore the powerful gift of song leading and song sharing. Lisa is a natural leader whose wisdom is communicated with grace and lightheartedness— a big feat in a subject matter that can be very emotional and fraught with vulnerability for many. I'm excited to go out into my community and the world and put my new skills into use!
It really was outstanding leadership training. I greatly admire how you use positive motivation, yet stay highly effective at accomplishing the mission. I have been in many leadership positions and still learned a lot. And the experience makes the whole music experience richer and deeper, from voice to harmony to community. I learned that sometimes I don’t need anything else to make the music work. So many thanks!! ~ Eric
The course is a wealth of tools and information that is new to me, even after more than 15 years of singing circles. It empowered me to spontaneously lead songs with strangers in unexpected settings (camping and in a restaurant, and with coworkers), and I have heard myself saying that I am a song leader. Many thanks to Lisa's exceptional song leading skills and generosity.
It was so much more than I had anticipated. The deliciously rich content feeds my song and I will be digesting it for a long time to come. The quality of Lisa's presentation was mesmerizing... seducing us into deep receptivity.
This course was a very special journey in so many ways. I especially appreciated the ways Lisa made the course material relevant for such diverse abilities and experience, which opened up a freedom to push some edges, and leave some be. The group calls were beautifully facilitated, and well integrated with the course offerings. I loved the connections with folks that happened through those calls. Since I don’t Facebook, the class calls turned out to be the best connector for me. The peer group helped deepen that, and I look forward to staying in touch with so many inspiring folks. Excited about the retreat, which will continue to build this community. The rich resources are a treasure, a precious library to which I will return. Lisa's gifts are many, beyond being an angel-songbird: teaching, modeling, facilitating, coaching, creating & holding community. ~ Ellie
This is beyond a rare opportunity. This is life, joy, song, cultivation of community, offered by one who continually marinates herself in spiritual life and practice. This is for song leaders, singers, and all who wish to let life move through themselves more fully and joyfully.
The Littlebird SongLeaders Flight Academy is packed with information in an easy-to-digest format. Lisa's upbeat attitude and support inspired me to practice and know that I can become a song leader and make a positive difference in the world while also having a great time!
As a total newbie to song leading, I appreciated the wealth of information Lisa has shared. This information will continue to help me for quite some time. Lisa's supportive, positive and kind spirit shines in all she does.
Flight School lifted me high to see and sense the bird's eye view of song medicine as a growing movement, of which i am part! Our course gave me tools for practice, connections to explore within, and confidence to cut the doubt and start risking more deliciously. I come back to this learning and treasure-trove library often to refresh my expanding practice, and i'm deeply grateful to feel kinship and support in the unfolding. Lisa leads all this with shining clarity and grace ~ her offerings have been a powerful spark for my song-leading vision. ~ Lyndsey
I can't recommend the course enough! Lisa is a warm, inspiring teacher and a multi-media pro who knows how to mix mediums for optimal learning and class cohesion. Whether you're looking to grow your vocal, song writing, community building, business development, or song circle leadership skills, this course provides a rich community of support and a full toolbox to help you build a reality from the blueprints in your heart.
The course is designed to be self-paced to work with your individual needs. Missing a day or two… even a week is not a problem for most students as you can either skip that week’s material and come back to it or catch up when you return. You will miss some opportunities for connecting with other student and peer groups during time away but can jump back in when you return. If you know will miss more than a week you may want to wait until a future cohort. Whether you stay caught up with the daily assignments or not, know that you will have lifetime access to the course material after the course is complete and can come back to any of it later.
This course is primarily focused on the skills and repertoire appropriate for songleading with teens and adults, although there will be many areas that cross over and are relevant to working with younger children as well. In this course we will touch briefly upon working with kids and diverse age groups but we will not give it deep focus. It may be best to email your specific questions and intentions to Lisa – firstname.lastname@example.org – to help determine if this course will be useful for you.
