About Dynamic Meladies
Hi, we are Sheena and Karen from Dynamic Meladies. We have sung, together and separately, for many years and Dynamic Meladies has grown from our love of music and the joy of singing and sharing songs with others. We want to expand possibilities for women aged 25+ in singing. There are opportunities available for younger women but it can be especially difficult for older women to find creative outlets.
Confidence can be a real issue. Even if you’ve always wanted to sing, you would be surprised how many obstacles you can put in your own way. “What if I really can’t sing?” “What if everyone else is brilliant?” “What if I can’t keep up with the class?” “I won’t know anyone and I’ll be really self-conscious.”
Here’s what some of our ladies have to say about us:
“Can't recommend this group
highly enough. Friendly, welcoming, relaxed, inclusive space for fun and
confidence building through group singing. It's like a really good fitness
class but for your voice, and you get cookies after.”
“This is a fantastic group,
very friendly and fun and a chance to learn a bit more about singing techniques
so you can improve. I nearly didn't go because I thought 'Who am I kidding?'
but I'm so glad I did. Songs were generally well-known and harmonies taught at
a pace I could follow. I had a really great time.”
“I had a
brilliant time and went home 'buzzing'. Thank you so much for running the
class, it challenges, cheers and inspires me.”
really enjoying singing again and already feel more confident in using my voice
after a good few years away from singing, so thank you both very much.”

WHAT DYNAMIC MELADIES OFFERS YOU
At Dynamic Meladies we want to encourage women to develop confidence in themselves and their voices by providing a safe space for women to enjoy singing and learning together.
The range of choirs now available shows how much people enjoy singing together. However, in a larger group there is less opportunity to focus on your own voice and develop it. At Dynamic Meladies we work in smaller groups, so we can really get to know your voice. We sing a cappella (unaccompanied) and, in this way, we are able to concentrate on the sound of the voice itself and the many things it can do!
At our weekly Singing Sessions, you’ll have the chance to learn melodies and harmonies and sing different parts. We teach songs by ear, so you don’t need to be able to read music. We sing a wide range of styles and give you the opportunity to suggest new material, which we then arrange to suit the group.
In addition to the Sessions, we also run regular Singing Workshops focussing on specific aspects of vocal technique. There is then an opportunity to sing a song, which puts what you have learned into practice.
We want to encourage women to develop confidence in themselves and their voices. We have created Dynamic Meladies to provide a safe space for women to enjoy singing and learning together.
Come along, join in the fun and discover your inner diva!

“I had worked in entertainment for many years and really missed singing. However, I did not want the commitment of going back full time. I heard of Dynamic Meladies and thought I’d give it a try. I found the welcome I received, plus the warmth and friendliness of the other ladies, was second to none! There are no divas just a real camaraderie between us all. A key factor for me since joining the group is just how much it has improved my singing voice. Harmonies have always been a weak link for me but with the great guidance of Sheena and Karen I am slowly but surely improving.
I genuinely cannot recommend Dynamic Meladies highly enough! If you want to meet new friends; be able to sing “that” song at parties and sound really good; or simply learn a new skill but without feeling under any pressure, I strongly suggest you do what I did - come along and give it a try. You won't be disappointed.
We run Singing Workshops every couple of months. Details of our next Workshop will appear on our Upcoming Workshops page.
