Quay Note Singers

The Quay Note Singers is a friendly choir for anyone who thinks they might enjoy singing in harmony with others. No previous experience or skill is required, you are not expected to read music, instead we learn songs by ear and in no time at all we can be making beautiful music together!

We sing all kinds of music, and we have some fun too! And we can be persuaded to sing in public occasionally. No commitment necessary, you can come along any time.

The fees include a low-income rate and you can choose to pay per session or for a half-term block.  Contact Sarah for term dates.

“I really enjoy singing with you and think you are amazingly inspirational.”

“I just wanted you to know that STUFF happens in everyone’s lives and for 2 hours every week we are able to immerse ourselves in your world.  You somehow lead us through a world of songs and, even if we forget our brains during the 2 hours you lead us, the sound is incredible!
 We are all so proud to be part of your group and love the sessions.  Thank you for sticking with us!”

Session times

Tuesdays 11am-1pm

Singing for Fun Exmouth

Singing for Fun Exmouth is a FUN harmony singing group led by Sarah Pennington, where the only criterion to join is that you enjoy singing!  All songs will be taught by ear, so you don’t need to read music, and the emphasis will be on getting to know our voices, exploring the wonderful harmonies we can create together, and building a community of song.  Singing with other people is proven to lift the spirits and increase wellbeing, it is now recommended for all sorts of reasons, eg mental health, lung health, isolation…

Sarah is a highly experienced and enthusiastic choirleader who inspires confidence and trust in her singers.  She has been leading people into harmony for 20 years, she has led Quay Note Singers in Topsham for 10 years now, and also used to lead a choir in Plymouth.

There is no requirement to make a commitment to come regularly, you can pay per session and drop in whenever you can make it.  So you can fit singing into your life, even if you are self-employed, or you have caring responsibilities.

There is a tea break with refreshments provided (including vegan and gluten-free options, and organic/fairtrade where possible).

The fees include a low-income rate and you can choose to pay per session or for a half-term block.  Contact Sarah for term dates.

Session times

Wednesdays 10:30am-12:30pm
