About Annual Music that Makes Community Workshop and Retreat at the Bishop's Ranch

In January, 2016 Music that Makes Community will return for our fourth consecutive year gathering over Martin Luther King Day weekend at the beautiful Bishop's Ranch in Sonoma County, CA.  The Bishop's Ranch is the ideal setting for participants who are new to the practice of paperless music leadership to learn practical skills and strategies for adding paperless song leading as a resource for congregational singing in home communities. Attendees can register to stay at the Ranch and enjoy the delicious food prepared by the Ranch's chefs, or participate as a commuter. Take advantage of discounted early registration rates by reserving your spot before December 1!

All are welcome to come and spend three restful days singing, learning and recharging for the year to come while enjoying the temperate climate of Northern California.Take a walk in the surrounding vineyards and enjoy breathtaking views of the Russian River threading through the valley. There's no better place to take some time to reconnect with the joy of singing in community, and we hope you will join us! 

New Track for Returning Participants
This year we are offering a special track for people who have already attended a Music that Makes Community event in the past, but want to hone their skills and reconnect with other song leaders. We are offering attendees from past MMC events a special 10% discount since this is the first year we're offering our new Returning Participants Track. Use the code SINGMORE to get the discount if you've attended an MMC workshop in the past. This offer also expires December 1, so sign up today! 

Group and Student Rates
Students are welcome to attend Music that Makes Community at a 25% discount. Use the code STUDENT if you are a full-time student at a college or university. Members of a group of two or more receive $25 off tuition for each group member. Use the code GROUP to apply the discount when you register.

***Please note: if you are a returning participant and are planning to attend as part of a group, you will need to email to register as our system won't allow two discounts to be applied at the same time.
