This past weekend was the culmination of a 10 week workshop I participated in through Blue Bear Music School. The school facilitates band workshops where people sign up with their availability and instrument of choice to get matched with others to form a band.
The bands work on a set of cover songs for 10 weeks and perform a showcase at the end. Sunday night was our showcase and boy, was it fun! Our set consisted of songs, from the likes of Aretha Franklin, Amy Winehouse, The Kooks, Stevie Wonder and The Lumineers.
I reflected a lot throughout the whole workshop. The whole 10 weeks reengaged a part of myself that I had stuffed away for a long time. The last time I took the stage to sing was over ten years ago at my high school talent show. I learned and gained so much by dusting off my pipes. Here’s what I’ll take away with me.
