What can I expect to experience at a Music That Makes Community event?
MMC events typically last the better part of three days (though some workshops are shorter), beginning with morning worship on the first day and ending with a concluding Eucharist service around noon on the third day. The schedule moves between worship, periods of guided conversation we call "What Did You Notice" designed to ground the learning in experience, plenary sessions where we introduce core material, and small group workshop sessions that give participants a chance to practice leading one another in song. The days are fairly structured and full, but we are always fine-tuning the planning to keep everyone engaged and learning while leaving room to absorb the material. The emphasis at Music that Makes Community events is on collaborative learning and skill building; we always start with the premise that everyone present is charged with the two-sided task of both learning and teaching.
