Drop in and Sing

A drop-in session held on Tuesday lunchtimes in term time.

Venue: St Andrew’s Church, Girton, Cambridge. Disabled access.

Time: 12.30 to 2.00pm

Cost: £7 per session, £6 concessions.

Explore your voice through gentle physical and vocal warm ups, leading into songs from a variety of cultures. This is a small friendly group. No previous musical experience is necessary, as everything is taught by ear. The emphasis is on fun!

Open Your Voice

Occasional day or half-day retreat-style workshops held in a relaxed, homely environment. An opportunity to get to know your voice more deeply, learn some uplifting songs, and spend a day with like-minded people. The shared lunch (and relaxation afterwards) are always a highlight.

Feedback from a recent group member:

‘Just wanted to say a huge thank you – your class was fantastic – I felt
so invigorated after the class – you have a brilliant way of encouraging 
everyone to feel safe and have a great laugh too!’
