Making a Difference with MUSIC

Born To Sing Vision

Deb Saville’s passion to Make A Difference has extended to co-founding Born To Sing – a choir for anyone of any age to come along and have FUN!   The Born To Sing vision is, “BE our best, GO places and MAKE A Difference.” We also have a Code of Caring which was developed by the singers.  Working with musical director Martin Meader BTS has up to 200 singers and has performed 15 concerts.  Part proceeds from most concerts is given to worthy causes.  Over $40,000 has been donated to Victorian Bush Fire Survivors, Cord Blood Bank, Valued Independent People(VIP), Save The Whales and the Kelmscott Bush Fires Appeal.  Deb and Martin are currently planning events to raise funds for Indigenous Projects and an event to work with Catch Music, including people with disabilities in the joy of singing.  Enquiries : dsaville@iinet.net.au

Deb and Martin can design workshops around a wide variety of topics that can include an uplifting section where participants sing!

Deb Saville and Martin Meader presented ‘Singing for Health’  workshops with people with dementia, their carers and support workers.  In conjunction with Southern Cross Care WA the series of highly interactive workshops showed that music, motivational activities and stress management techniques combine to have positive benefits on the health of all participants.  Martin and Deb have been working closely together for 3 years on various projects and received positive feedback about their style and passion.  Events have included workshops with survivors of the Victorian Bush Fires, and with community service staff to reduce stress, improve teamwork, set goals and create new organisational vision. Singing makes a difference and Deb and Martin are also collecting stories from workshop participants and people in the Born To Sing choir  for a book to be published in the future.
