Every Thursday night, from 6.30-7.30pm Dublin time, on Zoom
8 week course starting 13 May 2021. Drop-ins always available.
Online singing sessions with a focus on boosting well-being, resilience and sense of connection to ourselves, to nature and to each other. Each session will provide some physical and vocal warm-ups and you’ll be led through a range of uplifting and inspiring songs to sing along to from home. The songs, from many cultures and traditions, capture a message of oneness, nature care and connection, empathy and empowerment. These songs will inspire and uplift you throughout the week, and the simple act of singing will boost your mood and immune system, both really important at this time.
The atmosphere of this class is very relaxed and friendly. Everyone is welcome, regardless of gender, background, ethnicity or anything else. We have participants of all ages from teens to elders, logging in every week. It is all about wellbeing and fun and not about taking ourselves seriously or being ‘good singers’. As you’ll on mute, you don’t have to think about how you sound to others, you can just enjoy the expression and release.
You can sign up to 8 weeks or attend by drop-in whenever you like. By committing to 8 weeks you save a bit on the price per class. There is a range of prices, depending on your circumstances. A trail class costs €5.

“I did an online course of Global Harmony Singing with Rachel. It was one of the best courses I have ever done. Rachel has a lovely easy going style of teaching, and we could all harmonise together in the safety of our sitting rooms. I did not think it would work but it did, brilliantly. As someone who struggles with a chronic pain condition the global harmony online course worked very well, as I did not have to travel but still felt the connection with the group on a weekly basis. I hope there will be more courses of this kind in the future.” Patricia , Co Dublin
