Singing Groups and Workshops

I run singing groups for all ages and abilities in the community including community choirs and singing groups for older isolated people. Singing is such a positive and fun way of making friends and getting to know people in your community. Not to mention the many physical and mental health and well-being benefits that singing offers, these include;

  • Lower stress levels due to increased oxygen in the blood

  • Improved mood due to the release of the oxytocin hormone (aka the love hormone!)

  • Help with respiratory conditions

  • Improved cognition such as communication and memory

  • Core strengthening as well as facial and neck muscles toning

 

 

What We Do 

In the singing groups and workshops, I guide participants through appropriate physical and vocal warmups, teach vocal and breathing techniques and a wide range of repertoire- some that I have chosen, and much that has been suggested by the group. We will work on a wide and varied range of songs; mixing short, beautiful three-part harmony songs, chants and fun rounds with longer more challenging songs from genres such as world music, pop, folk and spiritual. No experience of singing or sight-reading is necessary as I teach all songs using call and response techniques.
