Start the Week Singing

An Artspace Cinderford Outreach course led by Kirsty Abraham

Mondays 2.15 - 4.30pm. Go to Artspace website for current dates

Fancy a sing? And not just in the shower or in the car? If you've sung for years but lack confidence in your voice, or if you've never tried singing harmony parts before but fancy giving it a go, this course is for you. All kinds of voices are welcome. The more you sing the better it gets! Singing helps with many health problems, gives your body a workout, lifts your mood and starts the week off brilliantly. Songs will be taught by ear - reading music is not a requirement. No-one will be made to sing on their own (unless they want to). We'll sing songs and harmonies from around the worls that can't be done on your own and also use vocal and body warm-ups and activities which help the voice.

If you wonder if its for you but aren't sure, you're welcome to come and try before fully enrolling. Email enquiries to Kirsty

Meditation and Movement with Jane Rothery

This short course built around yogic and Tibetan teachings is really open to all - from those with little or no experience who would like to learn about meditation, to established or lapsed practitioners who will have the opportunity to review and refresh their practice - it will also serve as an introductio for students who have experienced some relaxation, pranayama and meditation in yoga classes but would like to deepen their practice. It will be very practical - allowing students to build worthwhile reflective time into their everyday, busy lives.
