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.
