SING FOR HEALTH
I am proud to announce that I am now a certified 'Sing for Health' practitioner. I strongly believe that Teachers should always keep 'Learning'. Following a one off Voice College workshop on the 'Imaginary Singer' in September 2018 I decided to book my place on this course. Four months on and several assignments later I have done it! I am privileged to work with many singers of all ages and I am now evenmore determined to spend more time sharing my love for music and helping people sing for health and well- being. My research has really opened my eyes to the benefits of singing in communities and how it can have a positive impact on specific health conditions such as Lung Health, Dementia, Parkinson's, Depression & Anxiety. Please contact me for further details or pass on my details if you know anyone or a group that would benefit from Singing Workshops or One to One tuition.
Thank you to all our members and their families for your ongoing support!
