This past Sunday, our girls group participated in a private group singing class taught by Jenna O'Gara, the lead singer of Jessie's Girl a popular 80's band. The group met at our regular meeting spot and discussed the option of 2 travel routes that they could take in order to get to the singing lesson. The girls discussed each route and ultimately all decided to walk ten blocks north to grab lunch at Panera Bread. Over lunch, the girls engaged in friendly conversation and each girl shared their love of music and singing.
Upon arrival to the class, Jenna engaged the girls in several vocal warm ups and discussed some important vocal techniques such as breathing and singing from their diaphragm. The girls were each given lyrics of “Cant Stop The Feeling” by Justin Timberlake and the song was then divided into different parts and harmonies. We were truly impressed by our members' bravery to sing their parts and we were serenaded by their beautiful voices! The girls had such a blast getting to know this song and dancing along to the catchy beat. Our members are all looking forward to participating in another singing class in the future and expanding their interest and appreciation of the arts.
