Singing4fun with Parkinson’s

We sing for fun and enjoyment as well as to exercise the vocal folds and the facial muscles. Our singing builds friendships and laughter is guaranteed! Sessions include rounds, part harmonies, traditional songs, jazz numbers, ballads and songs from around the globe. No prior singing experience is required and you don’t have to read music – songs are taught by call and response by our highly experienced song leaders. We generally sing without accompaniment but occasionally our song leaders may add a little of their choosing.

Singing4Fun is not just for people with Parkinson’s – anyone who wants to sing is welcome. Nor do you have to commit to coming every week, drop-in when you can. There is a small charge for each session.

Tuesdays, 2-4pm at Marchmont St Giles, Kilgraston Road, Edinburgh, EH9 2DW. Our song leader is Penny Stone. You can see a short video of the group with Penny in an extract from a fundraising video we took part in for the church,
