Songbirds - Singing for well being

Would you like to sing for pleasure and your health?. If so, welcome and thank you for visiting our site!

Songbirds was established so that participants can indulge their love of singing whilst at the same time improving their breathing, focus and well-being. There are no auditions, no competitions and there is no need to be able to read music. Be assured all voices are welcomed because we are singing for ourselves, for our mental health and well-being. We are not performers, although we do like taking part, as long as no stress or pressure is involved. We enjoy singing a range of melodies, some familiar, some new, stretching ourselves to be the best we can be.

All abilities and conditions are welcome as together we thrive.

Join us in person or on-line

You can join Songbirds in person or on-line. If you are not already a regular member of the group please contact us to let us know how you would like to attend (in person or on-line)) so that we can send you the relevant details.

Singing In Person

We meet in Stewkley Village Hall on Mondays; doors open at 10.15am and we sing from 10.30am to 11.30am.

If you would like to join us for a drink before the session, please bring your own cup with a spoonful of coffee or tea in it and sugar if required; we shall provide hot water and milk.

If you are feeling unwell or don’t wish to leave your house you can join us on-line instead (subscribers only).

If you can talk, you can sing; if you can walk, you can dance.

Singing On-line

What is it like to be part of an on-line singing group? Whilst you can’t enjoy all the benefits that physically singing with others brings, there are still many gains to be had. In addition to the simple act of singing itself, your mental health benefits from seeing smiles and faces on screen, hearing others speak, watching others sing and knowing that you are not alone. If you decide to try on-line singing be assured, no matter what your age or technical ability, you will receive plenty of support.

Full details of how to access on-line rehearsals are available on request.
