A Glasgow choir claim to have the perfect solution for people who suffer from snoring.

Whether you suffer from snoring or are fed up with being kept awake by your partner's nocturnal noises, joining a Glasgow session of Rock Choir could be the answer to uninterrupted sleep.

The contemporary choir claim they can help boost people's mental health and wellbeing through singing - and they say there is scientific research that has shown this is the case.

The Glasgow Rock Choir sessions are run by Elaine Williamson and Jennifer Sim.

Elaine said: "Singing helps to exercise and strengthen muscles in the soft palette, which is where the snoring vibration occurs.

"A study carried out by the Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust, found preliminary evidence that regular singing exercises may benefit people who snore.

"This prompted us to ask Rock Choir members whether they or their partners had noticed any improvements in their snoring since joining.

"Over 10 per cent of respondents said yes. We often receive emails and letters from choir members telling us how much being in Rock Choir is helping them to feel happier, increase their confidence and even lose weight. So this is yet another bonus!"

Rock Choir member Dagmar Rathbone says her husband has noticed a difference since she joined Rock Choir: "Apparently my snoring is now quieter, "says Dagmar. "My husband says I've gone from a tank to a motorbike!"

Another Rock Choir member, Viv Feeley, says her snoring has reduced since joining. "I'm now thinking of getting my husband to join Rock Choir too!" she says.

Founder Jennifer says: "We're always looking for new members and husbands and partners are very welcome to join us," she says. "They can even try a free taster session first. I can't guarantee they'll stop snoring, but I can say that they'll have a great time singing. Time and time again I see how singing with Rock Choir helps improve people's self-confidence and gives them wonderful sense of fulfilment and wellbeing. It's a great way of letting off steam and enjoying some time out each week."

Rock Choir is the UK's largest contemporary choir, with more than 16,000 members in over 250 local communities. There are no auditions and no requirements to read music or have any previous singing experience. Rock Choir members get together each week to attend fun, friendly rehearsals where they are taught specially arranged pop and rock songs. There are lots of exciting performances throughout the year and many of them help raise money for charity.
