What is Singing for the Brain?

Singing for the Brain is a service provided by The Alzheimer’s Society which uses singing to bring people together in a friendly and stimulating social environment.

Singing is not only an enjoyable activity, it can also provide a way for people with dementia, along with their carers, to express themselves and socialise with others in a fun and supportive group.

Hidden in the fun are activities which build on the well-known preserved memory for song and music in the brain. Even when many memories are hard to retrieve, music is especially easy to recall.

The fun and friendship is fantastic, but even better is the uplift in mood from a good old sing-song together – no need to be able to sing a note in tune! The more the merrier!

Having never sang before I met Mags 4 years ago at a spur of the moment taster session. Mags’s passion for singing and relaxed teaching style rubbed off on me and made me come back for more and I haven’t looked back since. I now sing in a choir and a barbershop Acapella group as well as regular top up lessons to fine tune my voice. I have been involved in some fantastic performances over the last few years including singing with a choir pitch side at Wembley, on stage at Echo Area & Birmingham NEC and backing G4 at one of their comeback gigs this year….none of which would have happened had I not met Mags on that Saturday afternoon in the sun!! I would highly recommend for anyone to let Mags help them on their singing journey whether your ultimate goals are to sing better in the shower or to sing on stage in front of thousands…she will help you bring out the best you have inside you.

I wanted to improve my singing and have fun singing with others and the course was a great way of doing that. I had not sung with others before so was a little nervous about it, but the teacher Mags Lowe was great. Mags is very supportive and friendly and made the classes fun and interesting. I particularly enjoyed singing songs as a group and we performed in public at a local event, which was very well received… I feel my voice has improved since I started the course and I’ve grown so much more confident performing in front of others. I would definitely recommend learning to sing with Mags Lowe. Simon

It’s so addictive! I can’t express just how much I’ve enjoyed the course and how much confidence it has given me. I leave the classes each week on a massive high. I’ll leave the course with a much greater understanding and appreciation of my vocal ability and the confidence to take up those 1:1 private lessons and to join a local community choir, and who knows maybe even brave the odd solo! ….you have truly given me the courage to sing.

Mags has transformed my voice from what could best be described as a window-shattering strangled cat to something very passable! We’ve tackled some fab power ballads and I can now sing my heart out in the car without my passengers demanding ear plugs. I absolutely love my sessions with her and feel like I just keep on improving. She is a fantastic teacher, exceptionally perceptive and very lovely to boot. A vocal miracle-worker for sure! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (Mary, August 2018)

Just wanted to say thanks for an amazing lesson tonight. I am still buzzing; not sure I’ll get much sleep before my 4am alarm!  You are an amazing teacher and I get so much than learning to sing from my lessons. I tell anyone who’ll listen how it is the best thing I have ever done.   Can’t ever thank you enough.   (Sarah, May 2018)

Based in Marple near Stockport in Greater Manchester, I work with many organisations, care homes and charities have students travelling from across the North West for voice tuition as the transport connections are excellent. Marple is served by two train stations, good bus connections and is just 10 minutes from the M60 by car. For more local Stockport, Cheshire, Peak District and Tameside residents, Singing UK vocal coaching in Marple is less than 20 minutes from Mellor, Romiley, Bredbury, New Mills, Disley, Offerton, Poynton, Bredbury, Brinnington, Adswood, Davenport, Woodley, Hazel Grove, High Lane, Hyde, Gee Cross, Denton, Ashton-under-Lyne, Cheadle, Cheadle Hulme, Stockport, Heaton Moor, Heaton Chapel, Heaton Mersey, Bramhall, Birch Vale, Werneth Low, Hayfield, Charlesworth, Chisworth, Glossop, High Peak, Tameside, Broadbottom, Gamesley, Reddish, Furness Vale, Whaley Bridge, Chinley, Buxworth, Chapel-en-le-Frith, Woodford, Compstall, Dukinfield, Stalybridge, Mottram, Hollingworth, Brookfield, Hadfield, Tintwistle, Padfield, Chorlton, Sale, Oldham, Middleton, Mossley, Lees, Levenshulme, Didsbury and Cheshire.
