Singing for wellbeing!
In partnership with Prims Arts and Cumbria County Council, New Arts North delivered a series of singing days and workshops for carers. It focused upon the building of confidence in the belief that all participants are able to take part in singing and composiitonal activities.
Through communal singing and basic soundscape composition, we illustrated techniques that hopefully would help participants embellish their skills, and learn new ones, ones that would empower their client groups.
Pictures to follow!
Participant comments below:
"Thoroughly enjoyed from start to finish. I feel more confident working and singing in a group"
"Excellent example in leadership of singing activities. Great ideas on inclusion and use of simple songs and instruments"
"Breathing and exercises will now be part of our sessions. Good to hear of other ideas and confirmation we are doing ok"
"Fun and enjoyable, a lot to build on and ideas to use. Would be good to have simple percussion session and an email group to forward each other ideas."
"Really enjoyable workshop and found it very useful and will definitely use what I have learnt as I now feel more confident in arranging singing sessions. I would be interested in the use of percussion instruments
