Emotional Support Peer Gathering
Next gathering: April 15
Times: 2pm Eastern
With all that has taken place (and not taken place) over the past year, we recognize the need for self-care and emotional support during this time. At our past couple of Community Peer Sessions, break-out rooms were created for those wanting to focus on emotional support issues. The need became clear so, in response, FARM is establishing a separate opportunity for our community to meet in a small, safe, and confidential space to work through personal struggles. Attendance will be limited to the first 15 registrants*.
The sessions will be moderated by FARM volunteers and are not a replacement for professional support or therapy.
*We’ll be watching for demand to make adjustments as needed.
Speaker: Janet Feld
Date: April 20, 2 pm EST
Can’t tell you how many times we’ve been asked about how to play or sing virtually together, real-time and in-sync. Seemed an impossible idea. But according to their website, “JamKazam has spent the last 6 years building the best platform in the world to help musicians play together live and in-sync over the Internet from different locations with high-quality audio and video.” Janet Feld is the Founder and Chief Music Officer at Janet’s Planet: Music Lessons For Humanoids, Inc., offering lessons and classes to people of all ages. She’s been utilizing JamKazam to successfully play “in-sync” with her students and we were excited for her to share her experience and knowledge.
