Dear Nia House Community,

For those of you who value music making and are looking for more ways to integrate music in your life and your family, I wanted to let you know about a great resource.

East Bay Community Music Project offers FREE gatherings bi monthly on 2nd and 4th Sunday mornings. Facilitated by Music Together teachers and others, parents and kids and teachers and everyone come together to sing, play, dance and create music together in community.

Sadie and I often attend, and its really fun and a great way to connect.

Check website for location and details: (no need to pre-register- just show up! its a potluck)

If you have any more questions about this or any other ways to connect your family and your child to music, I am happy to be a resource. I'm a K-5 music teacher in Oakland Unified, and have been teaching general  music and also drum circles and drumming classes for 18 years.

Musically yours,

Yari Mander

Thank you, Yari, for bringing your music to the teachers and children of Nia House!
