"F# minor, 2 chord, dominant 7th..." What the heck are they talking about? You don't have to play an instrument or read music to understand music theory. Come learn some basic concepts you can use to build better harmonies, communicate more effectively with instrumentalists accompanying your singing, or better understand what you're already singing so well. No guitars allowed out of their cases - who needs them? We'll sing!
