One day I found myself teaching the different parts of a song to a small group of people. It worked out quite well and I thought to myself – I can do this! So I started an a cappella singing group. I wanted it to be open to everyone so decided to teach by ear and to make it a place to relax and enjoy ourselves without the pressure of having to perform. We meet every Thursday at Smailholm Village Hall.
The Smailholm Singing Group has been going for almost 11 years. I currently lead three other groups all a cappella mostly three part harmony and all taught by ear.
Singing for Lung Health – Coldstream Community Centre on alternate Mondays. – 2.30pm to 4.30pm . This is part of The Cheyne Gang https://www.thecheynegang.com/
