You say you can’t sing? Believe it or not, we are all born singers, and you don’t have to read music or be a solo performer to love singing. In fact, singing together makes us feel good and belonging to something bigger than yourself enhances your well-being by giving you a sense of belonging. There is scientific evidence that harmonising is good for your health and that the challenges and enjoyment of singing in groups and harmonising with others, improves your stress levels, relieves anxiety, and elevates your endorphins.
You say you can’t read music? Well don’t you worry. Many of our choir members can’t, but through regular practice, we all get there in the end.
You say, you don’t know the songs? Actually, at the start of the term, most of us don’t know the songs either, and the cool thing is that there are enough of us for you to learn without embarrassment.
We are kicking off our Winter term on the 11th of June so this is the perfect time to come along and give it a try. For this term, we will be focussed on fun and learning songs which are social and easy to learn for all musical levels from the experienced chorister to those who just love to sing. Since we are all at the start of a new repertoire we can all learn together.
We will be practicing each Monday night from 6 pm, at the Mercury Bay Area School Music room, and we welcome you with open arms. Just bring your voice and a pencil. The choir will provide you with the music and make you feel at home.
