Community Singing Workshops

Community Singing Workshops

Singing can help improve posture and breathing, help improve mood and feelings
of happiness and help you connect with others.

We believe that everyone can sing – despite what they may have been led to believe! All our community singing groups are friendly and no previous experience is required. All songs are taught by call and response so there is no need to read music. We teach simple, inspirational and seasonal songs from a wide variety of world cultures including songs that are moving, songs which uplift and songs which make your heart and soul smile!

Singing can help improve;

  • Posture
  • Breathing
  • Improve mood and feelings of happiness
  • Help you connect with others

General happiness & feeling connected to others has definitely improved & the
sense of self confidence & lighthearted evenings have helped me with a lot of
anxiety based issues. It is a great way to feel uplifted & escape from anything
difficult that’s going on in your life
