You don't have to be a "good" singer - if you can hum, come sing with us!
We've teamed up with our friends at Yarm Wellness to provide a positive impact on the wellbeing of the wider community through the provision of a community choir. Each week we will sing together, chat and have fun, and even try our hand at instruments such as Ukulele, Samba drumming and more.
Adults can learn with us too! Try our ZOOM online offer!
There's never been a better time to learn a musical instrument and it's never too late to pick one up. With our brand new 'Learning from Home' package, we can deliver engaging, fun and exceptional music lessons, led by our team of specialist teachers, all from the comfort of your home. Lessons are priced at just £15.40 per lesson, schedules are flexible to suit you, and you'll also benefit from additional online resources. Discover what TVMS can offer you.
Working in the Community
TVMS see the impact that music has on people and we’re committed to offering our facilities and resources to more people. We can provide events and workshops for the wider community too. If you want to try Japanese Taiko Drumming, African Drumming, Song Writing or rocking out in our Sound Pod facility, whether you are a church, corporate body or social organisation – contact us for more information or to book an event.
COVID-19 Care Home Project
During the first and second COVID-19 Lockdowns, Tees Valley Youth Choir recorded and produced singalong videos, aimed at keeping care home residents smiling during such difficult times. Nikki Lycett-Findlay, TVYC’s Musical Director, wrote in a dedicated post on Facebook that she “hoped the singalongs bring the residents some joy and comfort in these challenging times.”
Community Choir Sing-Along Resources
Subsequent to 2020/21 lockdown restrictions, it became impossible for ensembles and community groups to meet in person. Therefore, many of our ensembles moved to rehearsing and performing virtually. This was also the case for the Durham and Tees Valley Teachers’ Choir. Resources have now been provided by TVMS staff to support Durham and Tees Valley Teachers’ Choir members, but also any other community choirs rehearsing during a time when face-to-face meetings aren’t possible.
