Of course not!! We welcome everyone, whether they think they can sing or not. Singing in Humbugs is so much more than just singing. We teach usually by rote, sometimes with words, sometimes by ear, sometimes in parts, sometimes all together. It's about connecting with each other and that's the best thing. 

But I can't sing!!

We don't care if you think you can sing or not! It's all about boosting your mental health, having a bit of fun and yes, making time for yourself when the kids are around. It's possible... try it! You don't need to be the next Whitney Houston or even Maria Callas to come along. A simple desire to open your mouth and let some noise out is all you require.

I can't read music...

My child is particularly active - is this ok?

Hey, no-one's perfect 😉 and because only a small proportion of our members do read music, we teach everything either by ear or from word sheets. We sometimes have music for those that can read and those that can't follow along with words.

Yes, as long as they aren't too noisy. We provide toys that seem to suit most, or you can bring along an iPad and headphones if you wish.

Can I join part-way through a term?

Yes, and yippee! You can join whenever you like. We're learning new stuff all the time and always welcome a new voice. Singing for Sanity is a drop-in session anyway.

Try it... You might like it! At our regular live sessions in Larkhall, Bath, your first session is absolutely free. After that, it's £7 per session, payable in half term blocks. BUT SINGING FOR SANITY IS EVEN CHEAPER AT ONLY £4 PER SESSION (PAY AS YOU GO).
