Middlesbrough Town Hall Community Choir

£3.50 per week, payable on the door
Fun and friendly singing groups for all ages and abilities. Beginners welcome! These are fully inclusive groups welcoming anyone who wants to give it a go singing in a community style choir.
We sing a variety of genres of music including pop, gospel, world and folk. Singing is proven to improve health and wellbeing, so come along and feel uplifted.
No experience necessary and you don’t need to be able to read music.
Both groups are led in the same style, and cover much of the same music, so you do not have to attend both. Come along to whichever time suits you best!
10.30am – 12pm
£2 for participants, support workers/accompanying adults free
A music group for adults with special needs and disabilities. Through singing and drumming we will explore all genres of music including pop, rock, gospel, showtunes and traditional. The session is led by 2 professional music leaders and runs weekly on Tuesdays 10.30am – 12pm.
You don’t need to commit every week – just turn up and join in whenever you like!
Drop in guitar and piano workshops
2pm – 4pm
Free of charge until March 2019
If you have ever fancied learning the guitar or piano (or both!) then drop in any Tuesday between 2pm and 4pm. For the guitar session you can drop in and out or stay for the whole time. Led by Philip Bage this will be a group session learning the basics of guitar including chord patterns and strumming techniques.
If you have your own guitar, then just turn up. We do have guitars available to use, therefore if you need to use our guitars we would advise you to let us know in advance of the session.
For the piano, each participant receives 1:1 tuition for 20/30 minutes depending on numbers in the group. If you are interested in learning the piano, we advise that you register your interest in advance, so that we can allocate you a time slot.
Book your place at the guitar and piano workshops now! (places are limited so booking is advised)
