Breathe is fortunate to have worked with a number of talented Breathe Melodies for Mums Singing Leads since the programme began back in 2017, committed to the development and delivery of the programme to date. Whilst some continue to deliver on the programme, we are seeking to increase capacity within our pool of Freelance Singing Leads.
Based on ground-breaking research from Royal College of Music and Imperial College London, Breathe Melodies for Mums offers a unique, supportive, and empowering approach that puts mothers at the heart. The programme is designed to support those who may be experiencing feelings of stress, anxiety and social isolation.
You will lead a group of 10-15 new mothers attending weekly singing sessions with their babies for 10-weeks; challenging them artistically with harmonies and rounds using recommended repertoire from the Breathe Melodies for Mums Song Library. Within the agreed Breathe Melodies for Mums delivery framework, there is the opportunity for artists to bring their own style and creative input to delivery.

Deadline: Midday Monday 14th August 2023
