No! We welcome everyone regardless of whether they have no, some or extensive musical experience. Our sessions focus on wellbeing and fun and you can join in as much or as little as you are able or wish to.
Sessions include singing, music and associated activities, such as dance, rhythmic instruments, story-writing and crafts, and other activities depending on participants’ wishes. There is also a little time for a chat before and/or after sessions.
Our sessions are either free-to-attend, or low-cost (maximum £5 per session) to help partner organisations to cover their costs. You are invited to make a voluntary cash donation during your session, or donate online here.
Details for individual groups including fees can be found here.
