Singing can be a great detox for the body, mind and soul. Doctors are even prescribing singing groups to ease emotional and mental stress. Exercising the singing voice can help to develop and strengthen the speaking voice in addition to giving you the confidence to audition for your local choir if you should wish to!
For singers and ‘non singers’, these uplifting workshops are designed to strengthen your voice , promote relaxation and improve health and wellbeing. The music is a combination of familiar folk, gospel and popular songs and new simple songs in rounds and part harmonies.
I always include breathing exercises, body alignment, vocal projection and vocal toning with the aim of releasing any built up tension in the body so that you can free your natural voice. No solos required!
I have run these regularly in Bristol, Swindon and across South Wales for the past 15 years and they are popular with teachers as respite and the W.I. in particular. They are ideal for staff well being days, bringing everyone together for a relaxing sing.
Lots of practical “self help” tips and advice
Fun, simple and relaxing activities – well paced
Activities were relaxing and relevant. Learned a lot!
Thank you! Worth the trip. Time passed very quickly so must have been absorbing and enjoyable
Enjoyed all of the session
A very talented interesting teacher.

“It was even more than I had hoped for. It is great to find something new, this is different to anything else that is available to people who are looking to improve their health. I hope that more people can find out about this group and that it can keep running.”
“I came in here tonight feeling stressed out from work and now I am leaving with a smile on my face!”
“Thanks for the excellent workshop yesterday… A good balance of advice and practice sustained throughout; plenty of enjoyable work for participants to do; objectives clear; friendly, humorous tone, good at the end of a working day; use of your own experience and your ability to sing well adds conviction to the objectives of the course…”
