Sing Laugh Breathe choirs are informal, fun and friendly groups that welcome those who are hesitant about their singing as well as more experienced singers who want to sing for fun and enjoyment.
We will be singing songs from around the world unaccompanied. There's no need to read music as songs will be taught by ear. It's all about enjoying your voice, the company of others and the connection singing together can bring.
Sing - Singing is natural – people sing naturally all over the world and have done so for thousands of years instinctively. In a community choir it's not about “getting it right” or having a “good” voice. More confident singers support less confident ones and together make a wonderful sound that everyone contributes to. Each person’s voice is unique, so each person is respected in their uniqueness, welcomed and accepted
Laugh - A sense of connection and community is fostered through singing and laughing together. We have a strict principle of not judging or criticising each other, so that we foster a trusting group where those less confident can flourish and everyone can relax and have fun.
Breathe- When we sing the whole body is your instrument: tensions and stresses of daily life can create physical and emotional blocks, so we do breath and body work as a foundation for healthy voice use. Singing encourages us to breathe more deeply, refreshing ourselves with more oxygen. This is why singing can be so enlivening!
"It is music and dancing that makes me at peace with the world and at peace with myself"
