Mums and babies tune into MamaSing group
PUBLISHED: 06:30 16 October 2016
A new singing group for mums and babies has been launched in Budleigh Salterton.
MamaSing meets every Thursday at 10.30am in the baptist church in Little Knowle - and is already working towards a performance at the church.
Mums, dads and grandparents attend the weekly sessions with their children to sing a mixture of songs.
Pop, gospel, jazz and world music is taught in two-part harmony, allowing adults to enjoying singing while still caring for their baby.
The sessions are run by early years music practitioner Emma Gray, who is also known as ‘Miss Miranda’.
She said: “You don’t need to have any previous singing or choir experience and it doesn’t matter if your baby cries or needs to be fed or changed during the session.
“These sessions are a way to relax and meet others who also love to sing.”
MamaSing was formed by Budleigh resident Karen Eaves when she was unable to find a daytime music activity that she could take her baby to.
Karen is violinist and, as well as launching MamaSing, has created a record label along with her husband Mike Eaves.
She recently relocated to Budleigh after setting up the British Academy of New Music in London.
MamaSing costs £24 for a six-week term or there is a £5 per session drop-in rate.
