With a background in professional singing and Mum to three young children, Carrie's own story to Melody Mums was through her experiences of how hard parenting can be. With the birth of her first baby, she found established friendships inevitably suffered as priorities in life changed and all forms of socialising became nearly impossible for a time. Adjusting to being a parent took at least six months to a year for Carrie and she created Melody Mums to help others in a similar situation- bringing parents together through music.
Carrie created Melody Mums to help parents and carers come together through music. Singing in a group builds your confidence; which is especially important as your life changes and you become a parent.
The group is full of Carrie's relaxed approach to singing and she opens up the music to build up your skills in vocal technique as you learn new songs as part of a friendly choir, where children are welcome too!
