Oasis Cardiff Music Group

When?  Mondays between 11:30am and 12:30am (women’s group) and between 1:00pm and 2:30pm (“all welcome” group)

Where?  Cardiff Oasis, 69b Splott Road

Contact:  info@oasiscardiff.org  029 2046 0424

The Oasis Music Project runs on Mondays with the women’s group from 11.30 – 12.30 and the mixed “all welcome” group 1 – 2.30.

 

All are welcome! We aim to have fun, get to know each other, share songs and create music all within a non judgmental atmosphere.  Throughout the project we have written many group songs and have built up a songbook with well over 100 songs made up of original songs composed by the group, songs from group members countries as well as favourite songs in the English language (this, as well as he chatting in between the singing, has the added benefit of helping with people’s language development skills).  People have found the sessions to be relaxing and fun and have helped people feel that they are a true and valuable part of the local community.

 

Being a part of a community music or singing group has recently been scientifically proven to have very positive health benefits…..  Reducing stress, increasing endorphins, encouraging a sense of belonging, taking part in a meaningful activity which can give us all a sense of purpose within our lives.

Proven physical benefits …….  Increased lung health, a gentle whole body workout meaning that people are working their hearts, lungs and muscles to their own level all enhancing overall physical health, wellbeing and happiness.
