Singing: The key to a long life
“ I believe that singing is the key to long life, a good figure, a stable temperament, increased intelligence, new friends, super self-confidence, heightened sexual attractiveness, and a better sense of humor. ”
“ I believe in singing to such an extent that if I were asked to redesign the British educational system, I would start by insisting that group singing become a central part of the daily routine. ”
A weekend course in Autumn 2017 led by two of Scotlandí»s most experienced community choir leaders; designed to give you the tools and skills needed to develop yourself as a community choir leader or to bring more singing into your work.

Saturday 20 May — Friday 26 May 2017
Glebe Barn Hostel, Isle of Eigg, Scotland
Fully catered 7-day singing workshop/holiday on a wonderful Hebridean Island
This week in May 2017 was the 11th year of this singing holiday on the wonderful Hebridean Island of Eigg, one of the Small Isles; a week of singing, walking, laughter, merriment and, of course, delicious fully-catered food.
This week is open to singers of all levels, and I will suit the repertoire to the ability of the group. Teaching will be mostly by ear so you do not have to read music.
Please watch this space for details of our 2018 week.

You have probably seen the Scratch Orchestra at the annual “Festival of Music, Song and Dance” at Findhorn, perhaps danced to the music. You may have been part of the orchestra once or maybe more. In response to many requests over the years, this is now a regular ongoing event, under the name of "Uncle Bill's Elastic Band"!
All instruments and all levels of experience welcome. We explore a wide variety of music.
