Founded by Sharon Little, The Treble Makers welcome women, aged fourteen and up, who want to sing a variety of music – from Bach to Boogie and Beyond. It’s an educational and performing group – members learn singing techniques and music reading skills in an environment which is encouraging, supportive and filled with laughter.
Rehearsals take place in the West Elgin Senior Elementary School music room in West Lorne, Wednesdays from 7-9pm. If you are interested contact Jane at 519-768-1717.
Sharon is a firm believer in the joys of singing, but she has found there are obstacles,
Many people just never do it, they make excuses … "I just sing in the shower … My family tells me not to sing; they make fun of me … I was told to mouth the words when I was a kid … Oh, no, you don’t want to hear me sing; I can't sing." I have heard them all … The truth is that no one is tone-deaf. If they were, they wouldn’t be able to distinguish one person’s voice from another … Singing is a matter of experience and success with small steps.” (Relish Elgin, Early Spring 2012)
