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.
