Charlie House Makaton Choir

24th August 2021 - Join the choir with a difference by taking part in the Charlie House Makaton Choir!

Charlie House is launching it's very own Makaton Choir, along with fantastic volunteers and choir leaders Emmeline from ELM Music Therapy and Sarah from Makaton with Sarah. 

Together, we will be providing 6-weeks of training sessions every Tuesday from the 24th of August 2021. These sessions will take place virtually over Zoom from 6:30pm to 7:30pm and cost £24 per person. 

Makaton is a language programme that uses signs together with speech and symbols, to enable people to communicate. Over 100,000 use Makaton as their main method of communication or as a way to support speech. By using Makaton, children and adults can take a more active part in life, because communication and language are so critical to everything we do and learn. The families supported by Charlie House benefit greatly from teachings and videos from our specialist Makaton volunteers and we are delighted to be offering supporters the opportunity to learn it too.

If you would like to see some examples of what you will be doing as part of a Makaton choir, you can watch the videos provided on ELM Music Therapy's channel here

Interested in joining? Purchase your tickets from Eventbrite here. Please note, the ticket cost is for all 6-week choir sessions and not one date.
