A new class in Beenleigh

We  don’t stop playing because we grow old,
We grow old because we stop playing.  
George Bernard Shaw

MUSICALITY is about learning songs to sing with fun and joy, accompanied by body percussion, percussion instruments, some homemade, ukuleles or other instruments for those who play them.  Each term the group will have a theme such as Rain in Term 1, so all the songs will be about that theme.   Tracy Francis, the tutor, would like to be able to get the group to hold public performances in the holidays and envisages a performance at the end of year U3A Christmas Concert. Tracy teaches Piano for Pleasure and is looking for new students including small groups to teach in 2015. 

Musicality will be held at Beenleigh Neighbourhood Centre each Thursday during School Terms from 9.30 to 1130am.  For more information contact Tracy Francis, Tel. 3805 5790, Mob. 0427 380 557, Email
