Has a past negative experience put you off singing?

Sarah Frayne from Waitakere Voices Choir

There are so many people who have shared stories with me about being put off singing when they were young - even though they secretly love to sing!

It could have been a careless word from a well meaning family member, a grouchy singing teacher who told you to mime during the school song or just the fact that your voice changed and you weren't quite sure what would come out of your mouth when you tried to sing.

Whatever the reason don't let past experiences put you off doing something that you love or that you have always wanted to try!

At Waitakere Voices choir we welcome people from all backgrounds and all musical abilities. There is no judging or shaming here!

So come along on Tuesday 5th Feb to our free "give-it-a-try" evening - 7.15pm at ACG Sunderland School in Henderson.

For more info email wvoiceschoir@gmail.com or just come along!

A new way to live

Ryman Healthcare Limited

It’s a time for fine-tuning your skills and pushing the boundaries, catching up with your mates and heading off on new adventures at the drop of a hat! No, we’re not talking about your 20s, we’re talking about your retirement.

Ross’ retirement saw the beginning of his musical journey where his passion quickly evolved from making music, to crafting guitars. It all started when Ross and some mates joined a music group where the camaraderie and togetherness were just as important as the music.

Living in a Ryman village, Ross can continue living life to the full in his retirement because they are places where you don’t retire from life, you find a new way to live .
