Singing for Wellbeing

Group singing classes for health and wellbeing

Singing For Wellbeing at Kidron Project provides fun and relaxed group singing sessions in the community in partnership with Lyle Gateway and run by vocal coach Daniella Hathaway (RSNO, Scottish Opera).

These sessions are informal, fun and friendly with an emphasis on social connections and mental and physical wellness for adults, plus some time for social conversation over tea, coffee and cake.

The 1 hour class starts with a fun body warm up, coordination and breathing exercises, followed by voice warm ups, action songs, rounds and partner songs. Half way through there will be a well known song to be sung in two or three parts. Finishing with a calming mindfulness exercise.

Past participants of Daniela's classes have reported better breathing and voice production, improved mood, feeling happier and uplifted, a sense of calmness and building new social connections through singing.

The sessions cost £3 per person per week and includes tea/coffee.

Daniela was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She studied singing at the Royal Academy of Music in London and has performed in the UK, Argentina, France and Mexico. Daniela has her own trio with cello and Piano called Trio Alma with exciting concerts planned for 2024/25.

Alongside singing Daniela develops and delivers community music projects for primary schools, care homes, people living with Dementia and children with additional needs. Most recently she sang at the RSNO concert for people living with Dementia.

Daniela currently is one of the vocal leaders for Memory Spinners and Breath Cycle, both with Scottish Opera, she is the singing teacher for RSNO Youth Chorus, works for NYCOS as a singing leader and runs her own private singing practice which include children and singing for well-being choirs.
