About the Event
River Teign Singing Group – Reclaiming singing as your birthright 🎶
LET THE VALLEY SING! 😃
Singing is YOUR BIRTHRIGHT! Whoever you are, we are waiting for you.
Join us in this fun, relaxed, inclusive and totally no-pressure group dedicated to reclaiming your own singing power and to enjoying the magic of voices that come together in song.
No matter your level of experience or ability, even if you have been told you couldn’t sing – you can here!
No need to read music and no previous experience required.
We work on simple songs from around the world, taught by ear, with parts to suit all abilities from novice to accomplished and at a pace that everyone can follow.
There is always something you can contribute no matter your level or confidence – come and try it out!
We explore songs of various styles from folk to gospel, tribal and spiritual – songs that sing of Love, Peace, Compassion – or sometimes just fun songs.
We work on voice and breathing, incorporating meditation, mindfulness, gentle body work and conscious breathing exercises for confidence and connection to your own true voice.
I also teach fun and simple exercises to help you find, protect and improve your singing voice, so that you understand how singing works and how you can develop your voice for confidence and skill. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced singer, you will find that you naturally make progress with your singing week after week.
But most importantly, our singing group is a friendly, supportive, relaxed and inclusive space, with no pressure and no judgement. you will definitely have a good time, with a lot of shared laughter and support and surprising achievements.
You are welcome whatever your age, skin colour(s), gender inclination(s), political trend, spiritual belief, neuro-divergence (I am autistic myself), and whether you love or hate Marmite. Even if you are a BSL user, there are many ways in which you can join in, creating singing in your own way.
Singing is what we ALL share in whatever way that may be, so please DO come!
The main purpose being that everyone enjoys themselves a lot and leaves each session with a warm fuzzy heart boost.
We share our songs with the community through a homely gathering at the end of each term and there is the opportunity to sing in public at local events or in mini flash mobs for those who wish (optional).
Looking forward to singing with you! 🎶
