Gonna rise up Singing

Ref: C2338280

A relaxed, fun and friendly group singing class. There is no need to have any previous experience of singing, nor any kind of musical training. It is not necessary to be able to read music as everything will be taught by ear. What is needed is a desire to sing together with others, a desire to sing for pleasure and to be enthusiastic about singing. Repertoire will include folk and traditional songs from around the world as well as some pop songs.
