Yes it's back!! A new term at Rock Choir. What better to beat those January blues but to sing out la la la la loud!
I have been a Rockie now for a year and have loved every minute of it, it certainly makes you feel good. They say singing is good for the brain, it alleviates stress and anxiety. It certainly gets my brain working. learning lyrics and remembering my part to sing. It makes me laugh as we learn different harmony parts and as soon as I listen to another part being taught after mine, It's gone! woooosh, just as I thought I'd mastered it and felt quite secretly smug with myself and inside screaming' Yes! I've got this' it's just evacuated my brain in some sort of emergency fire drill. I feel like Dory from Finding Nemo with a two second memory, one moment I''m singing like a proud bass and then the alto part appears and it's 'oh that's a nice part I'll sing that instead'. I'm like a rabbit in headlights when it comes back to bass's and asked the magic question 'so can you remember what you just learnt?' No! but I'm gonna sing anyway because I'm in my happy place, and I am. The other Rockies are lovely and we are led by a wonderful teacher. If you want to laugh, sing, socialise and perform or not perform it really doesn't matter. There is really no pressure, only the pressure of realising you CAN remember the lyrics after a few weeks, and it's ok to put the lyric sheet down, it really does become like a security blanket. Put my song lyric sheet down?!!! I won't need it? Are you sure? I'll just hang onto to it just a bit longer for that all important 'whoa' 'ooh' or 'ahh' I might need to read because I just can't remember that bit. Love it. So many songs and yes many lyrics but we get them in the end and after a bit of practice and polishing we pull it off and sound fabulous!! So grab the diva inside you and sign up for a go......you can have a free taster session and we'll all look after you, you will never look back. All the info you need is on www.rockchoir.com
Bye Bye for now and catch ya tomorrow.....
What to Buy Wednesday
From January 2018 I've decided to shake Wednesdays up and review products that I have purchased so we go from random thoughts to important retail therapy for the new year.
