About Nancy Salwen
Nancy is a powerful advocate for community music making and the idea that participating in music and singing is everybody’s birthright. Her work is based in the belief and experience that everybody has music inside them that wants to come out, and that with the right kind of guidance we can all make beautiful music together.
She has found that making music together brings out our best selves, highlighting and training us to be more supportive, cooperative, creative and socially intellegent.
