Singing teacher for Warblers

Joanne Edworthy
Joanne Edworthy

We welcome Jo Edworthy as our new singing teacher.

Jo is a graduate of the Royal Northern College of Music. She originally trained as an opera singer and has performed with a number of distinguished opera companies. Jo has taught both piano and singing in local schools and, following a music therapy course, she has led ‘Singing for the Brain’ sessions run by the Alzheimer’s Society.

Our thanks go to interim singing teachers Mandy Watsham Dunstall and Sue Merchant who, between them, helped and supported our group while we searched for a new permanent teacher.  Sue has kindly agreed to continue as stand-in on occasions when Jo has other commitments.

Warblers singing group is for anyone affected by Parkinson’s, including partners, carers and other family members with all levels of singing ability – even if you think you can’t sing. Sessions start with singing exercises designed to help people with Parkinson’s. Tea, coffee and a chat with fellow singers follows the one hour singing session.

We meet on Tuesday mornings from 11 – 12.30  in the Lounge at the Amersham Community Centre, Chiltern Avenue, Amersham HP6 5AH (map). The Lounge is on your left as you first enter the community centre.

Check for changes to dates for the autumn term on our calendar and singing group page. You don’t have to be a member of our branch to come.
