Can Too Sing is a new program to inspire, motivate, support, and empower through song! for fun, health, friends and fundraising through participation in a singing and music program finishing in our very own concert for family and friends. Can Too Sing is a program led by highly motivated, qualified music specialists who know how to make learning music fun at any age. Just like our other programs, it doesn't matter if you’ve never sung a note before — we’ll teach you how to sing!!! Choral singing has so many benefits, in fact scientists have concluded that singing in a choir is very similar to running or jogging and offers many of the same benefits. Just a little less sweaty!
Sing for the fun of your life! This program provides all the professional coaching and support you need to achieve a goal you never thought possible, and fundraise for cancer research!
Each Can Too Sing session is carefully planned to provide you with training and preparation towards our goal performance. You'll focus on singing technique, breathing and correct posture, relaxation exercises as well as having fun with instrument, movement and body percussion.
Can Too Sing will have a dedicated online portal to provide you with videos, practice tracks, and a practice buddy, so that you can do a couple of minutes practising your singing 3-4 times per week. This will help your learn materials and give you the confidence to sing out at rehearsals. You may be surprised that all this music has spin off effects in your life, like better sleep, greater relaxation and generally feeling better!
We will have a selection of guest speakers and presenters to work with you to help develop your skills and share their own experience of learning music and you will get to hear first hand from those who have experienced cancer and be encouraged to fundraise by researchers at the forefront of cancer research in Australia.
Literally anyone who wants to can sing! Even if you've been told you can't sing a note and you're tone deaf - you'll still get something out of this program. Making music is something to be enjoyed by everyone and just like running and swimming it also has amazing health benefits.
So many people have run half marathons and marathons with Can Too, many whom thought they could never do such a race, did just that and loved the experience. At Can Too Sing we will train you to sing with a choir and in just 11 weeks you'll be making music with a group of motivated people and performing in your own concert.
