Introducing… Hush Little Baby

I’m delighted to be launching Hush Little Baby, a new singing group for mums, dads and carers with babies.

 

We’ll be getting started in Catford, at the wonderful Abbotshall Healthy Lifestyle Centre. The first session is Thursday 3rd March, from 10am to 10.45am.

 

I’ll be teaching beautiful soothing lullabies from around the world, in harmony. Everything with be taught by ear, so no previous musical experience is necessary.

 

I became a parent for the first time in November 2020. It’s been a strange time to become a parent. For a big chunk of my maternity leave there were no baby groups up and running, so it wasn’t always easy meeting other new parents. I’m really excited to be offering a space for other new parents to come along to and meet each other, and do something that’s nice both for their babies and for THEM!

 

Singing with my little one has been a total life-line. It’s calmed many fretful situations from nappy changes to long car journeys to visit grandparents. I find that when I’m singing, it calms my breathing, which in turn calms me. And it has also stopped me cursing when a nappy change has gone a bit awry and what you thought was going to be a quick and simple job now requires a full outfit change when you’re already running late – you can’t curse out loud if you’re in the middle of singing a song!

 

Anyway. I’m very much looking forward to bringing some delicious songs to you, for whipping out in emergency situations, or for just enjoying for the fun of it.

 

The first session is a free taster session, so book yourself on, or tell other parents about it. And I look forward to singing with you and your lovely babies.

Think: crisp autumnal leaves, bonfires, cosy mugs of tea, misty mornings and sweet sweet harmonies.
