Foster Carers Singing Group

Singing together for enjoyment and relaxation

A fun fortnightly social music session for foster carers in Bristol, in collaboration with Bristol City Council.

Free to join, no need to read music, and no need to have any prior musical experience.

The focus of the friendly Foster Carers Singing Group will be to make music together for enjoyment, relaxation, and improving mental and physical health.

Everyone welcome

Harmony singing is proven to be a deeply relaxing activity, which helps build strong and lasting bonds with others.

During each session we will learn how to sing better and feel better.

Everyone has a voice to share, and singing is a skill that can be learned. Sessions will include breathing exercises to support singing and relaxation, and all music will be taught by ear, at a pace to suit the group.
