What the course is about

<p>With so many people now recognising the wider benefits of singing on mental health and wellbeing, it&#039;s wonderful that we have been given this opportunity to start a singing group with a focus on improving people&#039;s wellbeing.</p>

<p>Singing is something we all do at some point in our lives - whether as a child at school, at important ceremonies or simply just for the joy of it. But is it something YOU should be doing more often to benefit your health? Well, studies suggest that belting out a tune and singing in a choir can enhance your mood, your immune system, your blood pressure, and reduce feelings of chronic pain. Some GPs in England are starting to prescribe singing for a range of conditions.</p>

<p>During this course you will be supported by your tutor to feel comfortable and to ensure that your emotional needs are met. Ultimately, we will be using &#34;music as an agent of change&#34; and there will be less focus on technicalities and the ability of the participants.</p>

<p>It was also noted that structure is important to provide familiarity and comfort for the participants, so within the sessions, we will make time for social time so that participants can connect socially with the rest of the group.</p>

<p>All our courses are made up of elements of speaking & listening, reading and writing, and you will work using these elements throughout the course.</p>

<p>Learning takes place in a friendly classroom setting, which is a great place for social interaction and helping you meet new people.</p>

<p>Practice at home and completion of homework is advisable to enhance your learning experience.</p>

<p>This course is subsidised by Government funding so you should aim to attend the whole course.</p>

Pre-course information session or interview

<p>There are no pre-course information sessions or interviews in order to enrol on this course.</p>

Assessment of progress, tests, exams

<p>Your tutor will work with you to develop a Personal Development Plan (PDP) which will help you review your progress towards achieving your goals during the course.</p>

<p>There is no qualification or examination attached to this course.</p>

Who the course is for / Previous experience, knowledge or qualifications

<p>This course is for complete beginners, and for those who would like to refresh their skills. This course could be helpful for people who are experiencing low mood, anxiety and/or stress.</p>
