COPD, Burnley, Pulmonary rehab

A singing group started initially in conjunction with the The British Lung Foundation to help with breathing and any kind of breathing problem (e.g asthma, COPD and other lung conditions).

Now the group is for anyone who would like to just sing! – for you, for your lungs, for your memory, your blood pressure or just as a pick-me-up. Singing is great for your physical and mental wellbeing and we have lots of laughs doing it! You will also feel part of something very special!

No singing experience is required – and no need to worry about your voice. You will only ever have to sing as part of the group (no solos, no divas!!) so just come and have fun!

This group is unique! You don’t have to be able to read music, but you will really learn how to sing. (We don’t use backing tracks, instead you will learn how to hear your own voice and all those other voices around you that help to keep you on track.) You will also learn some great techniques for managing stress, depression or those those times when you feel breathless which might include times when you are anxious. The group provides great support and we always have a good laugh!
