You understand the importance music plays on transformational growth, and your spirit sings at the thought of holding this space for others. You don't have to be a musical genius to hold this space- moreso someone who cultivates themselves in an open, accepting, and loving way to create the container for transformation in others to occur. But being a facilitator of song also means having the abilities to create a safe musical container, which means understanding the basic music fundamentals of rhythm, ear training, song sharing, improvisation, prayer, and self-directed study so that your students feel safe to open up and share, knowing that you're holding them.
