Where do I start?! Singing with you Lauren Field has transformed my life. It's helped my confidence and self-esteem no end and helps with my periodic depression because singing releases endorphins. The camaraderie and banter are second to none and I've made some really good friends, the kind who look out for you and I them. Thank you xxx
Jean Todd - Berkhamsted Rock Chorus
A big thank you for organising the Christmas Party, a marvellous time was had by one and all. I would like to say a few words to tell you what Rock Chorus means to me and to so many other people. I came to live in Berkhamsted after my husband died, not knowing a single person, the first week on arriving I came to Rock Chorus, and had the warmest of welcomes from everyone. I may not be the greatest vocalist or mover but I have enthusiasm in bucket loads. I have formed many friendships and hope I have been able to give something back in return. You Lauren and Rock Chorus have transformed my life in so many ways and I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Maggie Lines - Dunstable Rock Chorus
What I would like to say is that for me as a Parkinson person, singing in the Rock Chorus has had numerous therapeutic benefits. It has kept my voice stronger and more audible than most people who have had the disease for as long as I have. It has kept the depression that can accompany PD at bay, it has given me new friends, new experiences and at 68 that is quite something. Thankyou Lauren and Charlie for bringing Rock Chorus to my attention and enriching my life. Wow that sounds very emotional doesn't it but I mean every word, I love singing and I love singing with Rock Chorus. Long may it continue to ROCK ON, Maggie xxx
Kaz Parks - Pinner Rock Chorus
I cant believe its nearly two years since I joined Rock Chorus in Pinner, along with making some brilliant friends, the best start to the week is singing such a vast variety of songs with lots of fun along the way on a Monday morning! To take part in some of the gigs isI something I never imagined I would have the confidence to ever do.just goes to show if I can do it I know anyone can!!
Keep on Rocking Lauren!
Sabina Lee - Watford Rock Chorus
I joined Rock Chorus September 2015 with the aim to take a new hobby and do more than watch television every evening. I didn't know what to expect and felt a little anxious that I might be walking into a long standing group of friends with close knit relationships - how would I ever fit in or be part of the group?
However, after my first session I was made to feel one of the team and felt excited to come back again and within a few weeks I was completely settled and even felt brave enough to take part in a couple of gigs.
Rock Chorus is a great bunch and whether you are old or young (I am a 29 years old) - they make you feel at home and there is lots of fun to be had, not to mention a fab Christmas party!
I would highly recommend giving it a go.
Steph Thannhauser - Milton Keynes Rock Chorus
It sounds a bit heavy but Rock Chorus has changed my life. I work from home and even though I love what I do I felt lonely, disconnected and stuck in a social rut. Singing with Rock Chorus makes me feel part of something great, I have made some wonderful friends, we raise money for charity and we have fun! So glad I joined, thanks Lauren...
Caroline Bailey - Berkhamsted Rock Chorus Very Happy!
Rebecca Brooks - Dunstable Rock Chorus
Singing with Rock Chorus is good for your heart and soul. Leave your stresses and strains at the door, release those endorphins and enter into the fun and often mad world that is Rock Chorus. My friend and I have been coming along for 6 years. Our personal improvement and development is debatable (ahem) but it’s always been loads of fun and we leave every week with big smiles on our faces. Lauren is brilliant; hugely talented, tirelessly patient and always entertaining! Our world renowned annual gig at Stantonbury is always a sell out and a favourite amongst members and fans alike. Some of us have even managed an appearance on the telly alongside none other than Martin Lewis! Rock-and-Roll
Laura Kaye - Watford Rock Chorus
I joined Rock Chorus 2 years ago and I absolutely love it. I went to a taster session on my own and was a bit dubious about walking in alone. But everyone was so friendly and I have made some good friends since joining. The choir is great fun and not too serious and Lauren is fantastic and very patient teacher. I find that singing is a good way of relieving all the stresses of everyday life - it always makes me feel happy after a rehearsal session.
Joy Lawrence - Watford Rock Chorus
It’s enjoyable, uplifting and a pleasure to be a part of Rock Chorus. A fabulous musical director, who is enthusiastic and makes singing interesting, entertaining and fun. I’ve participated in some amazing concerts plus made wonderful and long lasting friendships along the way.
Marilyn Kozack - Pinner/Watford Rock Chorus
"I have been a member of several choirs over the years but NEVER have I been so happy as since I joined Rock-Chorus. All the members are so friendly and caring and it is lovely to meet up with friends from the other 4 choirs when we do gigs together: it's just like one huge, happy family! And the best thing about the choir is Lauren, our lovely and fabulously-talented Musical Director.
Mandy Simpson - Milton Keynes Rock Chorus
I joined the Milton Keynes group in October and was very well looked after at my first session, being introduced to a couple of other members who explained how things worked and generally showed me the ropes. I really like the way everything is organised, with your email at the weekend with a heads up about what’s coming up on Wednesday and the access to all the mp3 files and lyrics and sheet music on the website. I also enjoy your teaching style - in fact, you were the reason I chose Rock Chorus rather than Rock Choir, having watched a few video clips - I like your sense of humour and the pace is right. Also, we laugh a lot - at you, at ourselves and at each other. Just what I hoped for when I joined up. Now I just need to learn all the words for 22 songs before April 16th!!
Mikaela Pavlovikova - Berkhamsted
Lauren, you are one super charismatic, funny and professional musician/teacher. The same applies to Rock Chorus rehearsals and gigs. Professional and alive! As a rock chick I really enjoy the songs we sing and cute dance choreographies. The whole choir is moving.
I loved the choir and its vibes after 5 min during my taster. I laughed so much :-) Thank you! I will always highly recommend you! Xxx (Mikaela, 39)
Heather Cumpstey - Milton Keynes
This is my third year with Rock Chorus - which I have found to be a fun and constructive environment in which to enjoy and improve my singing. I started from scratch and was very unsure of my abilities, but I never feel self- conscious in the sessions. I have found the on line resources very helpful too
