Music Classes: Platform Singers

Fri 26 Jan - Fri 22 Mar → 2.30pm - 4pm
16yrs +
Pay-What-You-Like

Platform Singers is a fun, relaxed and informal group for those wanting to sing and meet new people. Led by a professional singer we are always looking for members of all ages and abilities to get involved. 

The group meet every Friday afternoon at 2.30pm - there is a social part to the session with a catch up and chat before the singing starts - this kicks off at 2.30pm for around 20/30 minutes and joining in with this is entirely optional.

No previous experience is required - beginners welcome. The choir takes place within a private space within our building.

Some benefits related to singing include helping with breathing techniques, improving posture, lowering stress levels and providing a bit of a work out!

Please email tickets@platform-online.co.uk if you have any questions or need more information.

BOOKING DETAILS | PAY-WHAT-YOU-LIKE

These classes are offered on a Pay-What-You-Like basis, where you decide what to pay.  As a guide, we recommend a payment of £5 per class. Activities are booked as a full block and a taster session may be available (dependent on availability) if you wish to try a class first - to enquire about a taster session please email tickets@platform-online.co.uk

Pay online or at the class itself in cash (we have a donations box to drop payment into) or by card - you can either pay for the full block up front or pay each week.  Please note you must pre book your space before attending - please do not attend until you have booking confirmation.

Choir leader Rachel said: “Singing is fun and social and can also help with breathing techniques, improving posture, lowering stress levels and providing a bit of a work out! 10 minutes of singing a day can help clear sinuses, improve posture and release endorphins - your happy hormones.”

“If you feel stressed, sing or hum your favourite song – it will also help to calm and steady your breath! A few fun tips to make you smile: whisper beep bop to yourself and repeat until you are no longer sad, pinch your nose closed and say sneep snoop then boop-dee-doop in a really deep voice”.
