Who is this aimed at? Any adult who wants to sing. But what if I’m tone deaf? Who cares! Come along anyway – you’ll be in good company. I can’t read music! Don’t worry, you don’t need to. I don’t know the words! The lyrics will be up on a screen for all to see.What if I’m the only male there! No worries – the session leader’s a bloke. I haven’t got much of a voice these days… It doesn’t matter. There is every chance these sessions might help you find your lost voice! Can I come by myself? Yes of course!
This is a chance to meet people and make new friends. Each session begins with a nice cuppa and chat, then we sing for an hour or so. We start with fun and therapeutic warm-up exercises then sing songs from the shows, classic pop songs, standards, folksongs, rounds, jazz and even a bit of classical. Singing targets certain health issues, such as pulmonary and speech difficulties, anxiety, depression, dementia and Alzheimer’s. But it’s mainly about the enjoyment of singing together in a relaxed, sociable atmosphere.
