Resources for Song Leaders and Song-leader trainees

Squeezebox is a place for our Song Leaders, as well as congregants, to learn the songs we sing at St. Lydia’s.

Dear Song Leaders and Song-Leader trainees,

Thank you for taking on this important leadership role.  Making music and singing together at Saint Lydia’s is one of the enjoyable and yet powerful ways we become a community when we gather. As Song Leaders, you help us rediscover what it means to be a community every time we sing.

Here are some links to various pages, resources to help you as you prepare and, if you are so inclined, to deepen your understanding and satisfy your curiosity.
