Anyone who sings will tell you about the feel-good factor that it gives us, but did you know that singing is incredibly good for our physical, mental and emotional wellbeing?
"Singing has physical benefits because it is an aerobic activity that increases oxygenation in the blood stream and exercises major muscle groups in the upper body, even when sitting. Singing has psychological benefits because of its normally positive effect in reducing stress levels through the action of the endocrine system which is linked to our sense of emotional well-being. Psychological effects are also evident when people sing together as well as alone because of the increased sense of community, belonging and shared endeavour." (Professor Graham Welch, Chair of Music Education Institute of Education, University College London)
