Songs for Community
Joni's love of choral/group singing and "being the change we seek" led her to start this project called, "Songs For Community". It will be a album + songbook + activity guide that is meant for choirs, schools, community groups- anywhere there's group singing and/or a desire to use music to explore social justice and cultivating compassion. There are demos of a few songs, plus a video of Joni demonstrating body percussion that can go along with them.

Joni has been facilitating Circle Music workshops since 2019. This is a form of musicking that brings together the spirit of play, collaboration and improvisation. Circle Singing was originally developed by Bobby McFerrin.
During the pandemic, Joni also took up learning body percussion which to her felt like an extension of looping, except all the sounds come from the body. She has been studying a style of group Circle Music facilitating with a collective in Brazil called Música do Círculo for most of 2022 and will complete her training in São Paulo in January 2023.
Body Grooves is her take on Body Percussion, Circle Singing and Vocal Improvisation. She is available to facilitate workshops at your university, organization, conference, etc.
