Welcome to Givin’ it Laldie, where we believe that music is for everyone!

Our music sessions are FREE and are open to everyone – no auditions, no experience and no ability to read music required! We use music to build and strengthen our community, to connect people and to lift lives and improve well being – why not come along and have a go?
