Choirs and workshops
for adults with learning difficulties

Our YAM [YAMSEN Adult Music] groups meet weekly on Friday mornings during the academic year.  We swap fortnightly between singing and workshop mornings.

On singing mornings the Off By Heart choir rehearses for performances whilst the All Together group have a sing-along that includes actions and props.  Both rehearse together at the end of the morning.  Off By Heart perform at various concerts and festivals throughout the year.

Workshop mornings can include guests concerts, playing instruments, talent shows, arts and crafts.  Our songs and workshops are chosen with input from our customers.

  • We meet on Friday mornings 10:30-12:00 during academic term time
  • at West Park United Reformed Church, Spen Lane, Leeds LS16.
  • Each session costs £3.00 per customer.  Carers/staff do not pay.
