Social Groups

We are delighted to announce that after such a long break, Kippie’s singing group is returning.

Singing teacher Morag Simpson will be our new singing coach here at Kippie.

Well….you could say I have taught music all my life since the age of 15!! School teaching has included Cults Academy St Margarets and many of the city and Shire schools. I now concentrate on taking choirs mainly.

I have former pupils working in the music industry and recently met up with an old pupil from the Alford area…Emeli Sande. I would love for members to come along and give it a go – you do not have to be an experienced singer just have a love of music.”

The singing group will restart on Thursday 2nd September at 7pm in the Balmoral Suite. If you would like to take part or require further information then please email

Emeli Sande and Morag Simpson

It is a great class if you are recovering from surgery or got arthritis.

You will be working at your own ability but quickly will see progression as the weeks progress.
