GUEST,Northerner Relearning instruments after a stroke (27) RE: Relearning instruments after a stroke 23 Jan 07


I didn't sing for years owing to medical problems. I had a rare condition affecting my sinuses - an enormous cyst growing there.   Eventually I had the darn thing removed, and a good thing too as it could have killed me eventually. Took a year to recover from surgery.

I had thought I would never sing in a folk club again. Started back the easy way by storytelling, then went on beginners' singing courses. Now I'm a singing AND storytelling!!!   Amateur at the moment but am now doing voluntary work with my performing arts skills. I have one meeting later today at a school and one tomorrow at a hospice, to discuss voluntary programmes with them. At the weekend I travel down to Devon to a masterclass with Hugh Lupton, and in February it's down to Shropshire for another masterclass. Eventually I hope to go professional and earn an income again...

Good luck to the orginal poster!!
