What about instrumental groups?

We've teamed up with Making Music to produce similar guides for instrumental groups.

You can download these for free from the Making Music website.

The Singing for Health Network, working with partners across the singing and health sectors, has created free, dowloadable guides for Social Prescribers/Link Workers and leaders of choirs & singing groups across the UK. These are designed to support successful referrals to choirs and a happier, healthier singing nation! So if you're a social prescriber or run a choir or singing group and would like to find out more, simply click on the relevant button to download the PDF:
