- Creatively workshopping song arrangements
- Occasionally writing original material
- Performance skills
- Vocal skills

Yanai our Director and musical guru creates charts and arrangements, the kids and families have developed warm, strong connections with each other, and we generally have a great time.
In 2014 we had our first UFO camp which was attended by almost all families and combined fun camp activities with music workshop sessions. We are planning another camp for 2015 and are hoping to make it an annual event.
Later in 2014, The UFO recorded 9 songs which has now been fully produced and is about to come out as a CD. It will also be available for download here soon. We are also planning to make recording an annual activity and are looking forward to hearing the results of the 2015 sessions.
We love to perform, so we do! See the UFO Performance History page for lots of info about where and what we’ve done.
