Sangschule has over 30 members who come from all around West Lothian and the surrounding area to learn new songs and learn more about old favourites. Anyone can start coming any time. All you need is an interest in traditional song and the desire to sing. We believe that singing is something that everyone can do - we certainly don't see any need for auditions, and there is no need at all to be able to read music. Read a historical view about the benefits of singing.
What sort of songs do we sing?
We sing songs from all over the world, some brought along by our tutors, and many brought in by our members. Our only rule is ‘No solo songs - everyone joins in!’
We welcome anybody who enjoys singing with others and who is interested in learning more songs. Many of these are in the Scottish musical tradition, other come from a wide range of countries.
Who teaches the songs?
Our sessions are a mixture, some tutored by a range of established singers, others by group members who have built up skill in teaching songs over the past few years. Here is our current programme.
Where we meet
Sangschule meets in the Staff-room at Linlithgow Academy, Linlithgow Academy, Braehead Road, Linlithgow EH49 6EH. We put up signs to the room, but you can find it by turning right inside the main door, up a few steps, and going a few yards along the corridor. There is disabled access, and school staff will be happy to assist with the wheelchair route to the room, using the new wheelchair lift. If you want more information about this, or any other aspect of our meetings, please phone Susan on 01506 843592.
