Singing for Health
The singing for health and enjoyment (workshops) first came about through a happy accident of her M.A practical research meeting up with the enlightened HR department of a Local Authority. She has since developed them and delivered them to several groups, widely differing in age, experience, reasons for attending…
They are designed to be fun, (above all), energising; non-threatening (even for the very frightened singer!) relaxing; musically satisfying.
Perhaps it goes without saying that they are also confidence-building; useful for team-building; full of mirth; stress-busting…
They are carefully planned according to the needs of each particular group, with exercises, repertoire and duration of the sessions carefully chosen. The delivery is kept deliberately fluid however, as experience shows there can be unexpected outcomes and developments along the way.
Perhaps some of the people who have taken part can explain further...
