BODY-MIND

A Singing4Health workshop

is a singing activity

that focuses on well-being.

 

 

The Workshops

are not primarily designed as preparation for performance in front of an audience (although this is possible), but for helping people develop techniques that are useful and healthful for them physically (such as better breathing, posture, use of vocal folds, etc) and mentally (such as socialization, boosting confidence and reducing anxiety and stress relief).

Using your own body

to make music gives us an immense opportunity to know ourselves better and get in touch with our physical sensations and our emotions, and coming together to sing as a choir helps each individual to develop their listening and communication skills, their creativity, as well as a feeling of being a crucial part of a greater organic whole.

Improvisation and collaborative music making

are key part of this processes (you can check  examples of this in the blog).

Sustained by the socialisation and engagement that the workshop provides, participants are likely to maintain a good level of attendance and regular practice.
