Baby Friendly Choir

‘We have a truly special choir fuelled with the power of motherly love.’

This is a daytime choir for ladies singing uplifting popular songs where babies and toddlers are welcome, though it’s not essential that you bring one with you! You need not have any previous experience. Many people say ‘I enjoy singing, but I’m not very good’, but to simply love singing is more than enough to join this choir.

You don’t need to read music as everything is taught by ear using a call and response method and members receive recordings of our repertoire to learn at home, located in the Master Makers section. There are no auditions and solo singing is sometimes an option if you’re brave and willing! We sing everything from Adele and Coldplay, to Jessie J and One Republic.

The act of singing together will reduce stress hormones and negative mood states. Singing can also have an inherently relaxing effect; if you’re caring for a child, relaxing is rare, so hopefully by coming to this choir with your baby/toddler, you will leave feeling chilled out, more positive and uplifted. Performance opportunities are varied from gigs at local pubs, hospitals and festivals to family friendly concerts in local churches.

The aim is to make the rehearsals enjoyable and fun for everyone. Maybe your baby loves music and needs to be bounced, your toddler loves clapping to music or your crawler wants to move around and explore. At Melody Makers this is totally encouraged. Accept that some weeks your child will be as good as gold and others less so; enjoy the good weeks and rise above the less good weeks. Rest assured you will be among friends! Mums can easily feed/change their baby when required and there is a selection of toys within the room. The village hall has accessible baby changing facilities and we provide a non-profit Tea, coffee and biscuit facility.

Rehearsals

10:00-10:30am – One of the many perks of joining a choir is to form friendships, so this time before the rehearsal is a sociable time to chat and enjoy a hot drink.
