Each workshop/retreat can be tailored to meet your local needs...or we can work together to design an experience that fits your specific situation. Please contact me to talk about planning a workshop or retreat.

"One of my favorite things about being the soprano soloist at WPC is the variety of music Geoff programs. Music from many genres and all over the world is used in various settings throughout the year. I‘m proud of the fact that any person - no matter his/her background - can come to our church and be blessed by at least one song at some point in the service."
