A friendly and informal weekly group. Just like Manchester Larks, we sing a variety of songs, including some from the standard acapella repertoire, original songs and arrangements, jazz, soul, folk, pop, songs from around the world... whatever takes our fancy. We're not a performance group, but we occasionally find ourselves getting together with other singing groups for a joint sing, supporting a local event or singing under the tree outside at Christmas. New members are welcome at any time - just turn up. No experience is necessary and you don't need to be able to read music.

This group, that has been going since 2007, is led by Faith and a Teaching Team made up of members of the group. The Teaching Team is open to any regular member of Shylarks; no previous experience of teaching songs is required and team members get as involved as they feel able, from supporting another leader within a song, to teaching one part of a song, to teaching whole songs in several parts and leading whole sessions. Training and support is given, as required, at separate weekly Teaching Team sessions.
