Do Re Mi Fa So La Ti Do. How many of us have just hummed that whilst reading the sentence?!
We are told that singing is a great stress reliever, one of the best. Also it makes you happy and you can even lose weight if you jig around enough! With those statements in my head, I took a bold step last November and joined a local Rock/Pop choir, The Helen Vereker Singers.
Can I sing? I don't think so, but I am doing my best at trying to learn. Is it stress relieving? YES, Does it make me happy? YES and have I lost weight? Well,to be honest, NO, but I haven't gained any, so that's good enough in my books!
The ambience and friendship at the choir is contagious. Look at the happy smiling people in the picture on the Choir website.
HVS Africa November 2013
Look and listen to the video, Africa. I am always in a better mood on a Monday evening now. We have been booked to sing at our Courtyard theatre next year, followed a fortnight later by an appearance at the Llangollen festival!! Who knows, it could be the X Factor next!
Singing is a real confidence booster. It has spurred me on to believe in myself once more. There is no such word as can't. If I can join in with a great crowd of people and have a go, then you can too!
Do any of you belong to choirs or musical groups? if so, I bet you have fun. Why not share your experiences with us?
