Professional, profound, or just plain silly - Where to get the
"Bird's eye low down" on us "whatever that is".

Voice Lessons and Workshops

Mary Ellen has taught voice lessons specializing in people who think they can't sing. She still gives workshops on a variety of subjects and the above link can give you some background. For more information on vocal nodes check this page out.

Mew's Links

Useful, fun, or interesting... Musical and not.

Ed's Links

Gallerie Du Shlock Grande

Can't be explained, must be experienced. Inspired by a trip with Judith and Dave Hayman and probably also the influence of Fred Wessels, Mew's brother.

Scrap Book

Casual, silly, possibly incriminating photos of Ed and Mew and friends. Want to share some? In the coming website re-vamp it will be easier I hope.
