Harmony singing for parents
Kangaroo Choir was born out of my own experience of joining a choir that I took my first baby to. The singing with other parents was what most supported me - and my parenting - throughout the first months and years, and I found all the babies loved it too, surrounded by harmony and their mothers’ voices. I set out with a goal to support parents in this way. I am a teacher and therapist and have been teaching singing since 2010.

About our choir
Kangaroo Choir is a space for parents to relax, enjoy themselves, and connect with other parents, while their children have fun too. You don’t have to be a ‘singer’ so don’t worry if you don’t feel very confident. 'If you can talk you can sing'! Singing is innate; it brings us joy, connects us with our bodies and with each other. As parents, it can be hard to find time and space to engage in activities that we enjoy and that allow us to let go and relax whilst attending to our children's needs. At Kangaroo Choir, parents and children can have fun together; the space, setting, and the music allow children to play safely whilst we enjoy making music together.
Choir sessions start with a gentle warm up and then we get singing! We sing songs from different places and different genres, usually in harmony. The priority is for everyone to feel comfortable and to enjoy themselves! Sessions are relaxed and you are free to move about, change and feed your baby, whatever you and they need.
