Sing for Joy with Max Maxwell

Coghill Centre, Coghill Street, Whitianga

Sat 29 May, 10am - 4pm

Choir leader and musician Max Maxwell is leading a singing workshop in Whitianga on Saturday 29 May, designed to bring people together to create rhythm and harmony through music. 


Max Maxwell has had a love of music from the time he took piano lessons as a young lad in Scotland. Although his main musical endeavours currently focus around community singing and ukulele playing, he has studied or dabbled in various instruments over the years - guitar, bass guitar, organ, flute, recorder, African drumming and marimba.


His passion lies in bringing people together to create community, harmony and rhythm through song, played or sung. All are welcome to his workshops - we all have a voice and hands and to sing in harmony or play with a group of others often inspires confidence, creates friendship and brings great joy.
