A comment from a member :
“One of the reasons I came to ‘breathe into song’ was to ‘find my voice’. I was told at school that I couldn’t sing but also my experience at home when small was that I felt that I wasn’t heard, I think I held a belief that I didn’t have a voice in both speaking and singing. At the weekend I had an experience where I spoke out in a situation where in past I would have kept quiet and I felt ‘where did that come from?’ I really feel that what we do at ‘breathe into song’ has played an important part in that process and me finding my voice.”
