Singing - Sing Your Heart Out!

SYHO West vocal coaches

                                                                                                                          "For thousands of years all over the world people have sung – to express joy, celebration and grief, to accompany work and devotion, to aid healing – without worrying about having a ‘good’ voice or ‘getting it right’. Song has been a part of life, a way of binding the community together. Singing and singing together is natural and open to all”.

Natural Voice Practitioners Network

Sing Your Heart Out is a series of singing workshops (not a choir!) designed to get people together to enjoy themselves and to gain the known benefits to mental health from singing. There are currently four series of workshops running in different parts of Norfolk - Great Yarmouth (Monday mornings), Attleborough (Tuesday mornings), Norwich (Wednesday afternoons) and King's Lynn (thursday afternoons). Anyone can join to sing - present or past users of Norfolk Mental Health Services, their families and friends, carers and supporters – anyone who wants to enjoy themselves….. No experience or special talent is needed and all the music is learned by listening and repeating. A great repertoire of songs ranges across different styles and cultures. New singers are always welcome at the workshops – just come along!  It is free to take part but, where possible, donations are most welcome.

Jane is one of a small team of singing tutors leading sessions across four - soon to be five - locations across Norfolk. (A new opportunity is currently being piloted in North Norfolk). For full information on dates and venues consult the Sing Your Heart Out website; or email 

Involvement in planning, helping to run or generally supporting these workshops is always welcome - as are donations to support otherwise free attendance at sessions. There is a link to the Sing Your Heart Out website on this website
