Hi folks. I hope you are coping ok. I made this little video, you might want to check it out.

Singing lifts the spirits & boosts the immune system.

It’s the first time I’ve done this sort of thing and it’s raw and uncut so please forgive any clumsiness!

Hope you enjoy it, let me know how you get on (I can re-do it).  folk have already asked for just the exercises so I’ll do that next week.

Feel free to share with anyone you think would enjoy and/or benefit.

With much love from little me, Caro x

You can listen to the whole show which was a load of thinky fun at The Verb on BBC Radio 3.
