Testimonials

“Mila is a gifted guide. She helps people get in touch with that inner voice that we all have. I felt so fulfilled when I left each night, I kept humming for days!” ~ Ryan Patrick

“I am a shy person by nature and didn’t know that I could sing. Mila made me feel so welcome and comfortable, I was able to let go and sing with all my heart. I’m now sharing these songs with my family.” ~ Roula Ouroumov

“Sing for Joy had another great night this week. We learned all new songs, and were singing in 4-part harmony with some of them. If you are looking for more joy in your life, this is the place and Mila can lead the way!” ~ Kate Martin

About the Teacher

Mila Wood believes that everyone can sing. She uses group singing as a vital tool for building community, for restoring our sense of belonging and connection in the world. Her workshops and classes offer a safe, fun, and supported space where all voices are welcome. When we sing together in simple harmony, we build bridges of acceptance, compassion, and joy.

With over a decade of experience in community organizing, team building, and group facilitation, Mila is delighted to bring her love of group singing to communities far and wide. She works both locally and globally to build bridges of song, leading group singing events and classes throughout North America. Mila facilitates workshops annually at events including Singing Alive (Oregon and Hawaii), Village Fire (Iowa), and the Spirit Weavers Gathering (California).

As a graduate of the Community Choir Leadership Training, in Victoria, BC, Mila is thrilled to lead the Sing for Joy Choir in her home city of Toronto, Ontario. Sing for Joy is an all-inclusive, non-auditioned weekly singing group where all voices are welcome, and no singing experience is required. Mila also works locally with diverse youth and kids’ groups to bring more singing into the lives of our future generations.

Mila has worked closely with many teachers and mentors that have guided her path of song. She is thankful to Laurence Cole, Shivon Robinsong, Denis Donnelly, Liz Rog, Daniel Nelson, and Barbara McAfee… among so many more in the community singing movement.
