LIBERTY SINGER

I HELP WORKPLACES CREATE AND MAINTAIN HARMONY THROUGH GROUP SINGING

Does this sound familiar?

You’re not feeling the office love, the company vibe or staff morale.

You want to create a better workplace and environment where people form quality relationships.

You’ve tried various wellbeing activities, one-off workshops and away days and whilst they’ve all been lovely and well received, the lovliness doesn’t last.

You’re looking for something long term which is accessible to lots of employees.

Workplace Singing

I work with companies like yours to implement a workplace choir to improve morale, happiness and the sense of community.

The scientific benefits of singing have been well documented. Singing increases serotonin and oxytocin (the happy stuff) and reduces cortisol (the stress stuff).

In short, we feel less stressed when singing!

 

 Singing in the workplace can be a great way to improve relationships between staff, communication issues and generally raise morale. I can tailor a programme to your needs from early morning singing, lunchtime meet ups, one-off workshops, team building activities and ice-breaker conference openers. I can work face to face, online via zoom or a mixture of the two.

So if you’re ready to break down barriers between departments, inject joy and laughter into your workforce and improve communication across the board,  book a call to chat.

Regular Workplace Choir

Meeting regularly maintains healthy working relationships. We can work together towards performances either in-house or in public and really work towards the goal together.

More Details

I offer either regular face to face choirs or an online choir for distributed teams.

Working online using the platform of your choice, I can bring people together whilst they are apart. Having a goal to aim for works really well and the obvious choice right now is to create virtual recordings. There is an option to create videos for the REALLY brave!  I can accommodate as many singers as your online platform has got room for.

Meet ups often work best fortnightly as this allows singers to progress without feeling overloaded. I can accommodate monthly meet ups and would adjust the expectations and teaching style accordingly.

Conferences and Events

Open or close your conference with a soundtrack of your own creation!

More Details

Short sessions of up to 30 minutes to bring people together to sing. Its amazing what you can actually achieve in this short space of time! Harmony, laughter and a lovely sound. The ice will be thoroughly broken and your delegates will be set up for a day of working well together

About Me

I am Kari, a freelance choir director. I am passionate about singing together in groups and believe the value in this extends far beyond the actual singing.

We can create joy, happiness and confidence through group singing in the workplace. You get the chance to escape through song which helps build good working relationships and develops a great sense of teamwork. The physical and emotional benefits of singing can improve confidence and wellbeing… it’s also great FUN! Nobody needs to have any singing experience, you don’t need to read music nor even have a ‘good singing voice’.  

We all feel a bit better when we sing, but it’s when we sing together that this is amplified beyond all reason. I’m looking forward to seeing and hearing you as we start our singing adventure. We have the capacity to work face to face or over zoom – it’s even possible to create hybrid sessions. Whatever suits your organisation best.

Testimonials

 Singing let me have something for me – something that I could grow at, not just a pastime but an event I always looked forward to and I wasn’t alone. I made new friends and became part of the team and I have loved every minute of it.”

“I value the beautiful friends I have made and have so enjoyed singing out loud in something other than the shower! Thank you Kari for making this happen.”

“Thank you for the session today, it was a marvellous way to break up the day and have an opportunity to sing with colleagues. I do feel happier and calmer which is a nice way to be before the weekend..”
