Is therapeutic singing right for me?
You do not need choir experience or know how to sing to join the Upbeats – just enjoy music and singing in a group. The choir is open to anyone with a medical or neurological condition that affects their voice. There are many reasons to consider joining – especially if you:
- Have a breathy voice
- Have a raspy voice
- Have a harsh or strained voice
- Struggle with a quiet voice
- Often need to repeat yourself because people can’t hear you
- Find it difficult to coordinate breathing and speaking
Due to COVID-19, all choir rehearsals are currently held online twice per week. Tune in virtually using your smartphone, tablet or computer. We will resume in-person rehearsals as soon as it is safe to do so.
- Voice Exercise & Sing Along
Tuesdays, 11 – 11:45 a.m. (excluding holidays)
Attendees will learn how to improve vocal volume, range and breath control by singing well known songs while working on basic vocal exercises.
- Voice Practice & Musical Skills
Thursdays, 11 – 11:45 a.m. (excluding holidays)
Take your vocal skills to the next level by practicing musical patterns, harmonies, rhythms and songs
