Music Classes and Private Lessons

From Chicago to Australia, students ages 7 to 87 are loving Vital Body Wellness music classes and private lessons. Andrea has taught cast members of The Office and Second City, helped musicians earn spots in prestigious arts schools and guided newly retired folks through their first uke lessons. Her science-based methods boost learning and retention. Her love for music and people makes classes fun!

Vital Body Wellness

What She Said

Let’s play and sing songs by women and people of marginalized genders.

When we hear these artists’ music, experiences and words, we find and celebrate pieces of ourselves that are often left out in mainstream culture.

Come enjoy learning and discussing these musicians’ rich histories! Connect to other folks who want to hear these voices too.

Andrea has more than 23 years of experience teaching groups and offers arrangements for many experience levels and instruments.

All are welcome!

Vital Body Harmony Singing

with Rita Ruby and Andrea Bunch

Oh! There are going to be beautiful sounds. Come make them with us.

Join us for two Sundays of embodied relaxation, breath work and harmony singing! Folks of all experience levels are welcome.

We’ll practice harmony singing foundations: scales, chords, parallel and block chord harmonies. We’ll sing songs with harmonies like Down by the Riverside and These are Days.

We’ll enjoy the fantastic side effects of singing! Research shows that singing and deep breathing activate our powerful vagus nerve which increases healthy activity in the rest and destress side of our nervous system.

Two Sundays: June 4 and June 11, 9 a.m. – 11 a.m.
5547 N. Ravenswood Ave.

Vital Body Wellness members get 1/2 off registration.
