Don’t be put off by the term ‘Leader’ – you don’t need experience!

Are you looking for
enjoyable and
rewarding work?

It’s the Holy Grail isn’t it? Part-time work that fits around the family, is fun, fulfilling and gives you an income? Well actually, we think we might have nailed it! We’re looking for the right people to start up local singing groups in their area and we’re running Retreat Training to teach you how.

Don’t be put off by the term ‘Leader’ – you don’t need experience of leading singing groups or indeed be a professional singer. Nor do you need to set up a massive choir in a private venue – a small group in your home is just perfect, after all that’s how Singing Mamas began!

Wondering how much you might earn?

For each Singing Mamas Choir you lead you can expect to earn between £55-£175 per single choir session. And it’s possible to have between one and six choirs running per week. Sessions only run during term time, which is around 39 weeks a year.

So, who are we looking for? Well, first and foremost we’re after good people, with a love of community and inclusiveness. We need women with compassion for others and a desire to connect and bring people together. And most importantly we’re after individuals who love to sing and who’ll help us realise our vision of bringing the joy of singing to women everywhere.

Does this sound like you? Perhaps you know someone who wants a part-time role or is keen to start their own business without the hefty costs or risks of going it alone? We’d love to hear from you!

Singing Mamas License

Following your training you’ll have the opportunity to sign up to a Singing Mamas Membership, to start your own Singing Mamas Choirs.

The set-up fee for each choir is minimal, just £90. We have decided to scrap the monthly license fee to an annual Singing Mamas membership of £90 per choir leader, starting from the second year of your choirs.

Our mission to grow the community of women and Choir Leaders is not driven by financial ambition. Your license fee will contribute to the ongoing development of Singing Mamas Choir and the widening of our reach to bring the joy of community singing to more women’s lives.

New for 2019 is our Community interest company (CIC) status. We’ve been busy working on this behind the scenes to enable us to develop specialised choirs for vulnerable groups, referred to us by local-authority and primary care (GP practices) Crucially, these will be funded choirs and be an addition to our Singing Mama community choirs. Our choir leaders have been piloting these specialist choirs over the past 12 months and are all in agreement that this is the important next phase of growth for our Singing Mamas network.

The Singing Mamas Choir Leader Membership comes with

Your own section of the Singing Mamas website, featuring your photo, personal biography, full details of your choir(s) and details of how to book.
