Throughout time singing has played an important role in people’s lives. From performing rituals to singing in the bath the human voice has accompanied us in our everyday tasks as well as in our quest for a deeper connection to ourselves and the world.
We often sing when we are happy, or as an expression of grief. Whether we sing or actively listen to someone else sing, our emotional life is affected and the connection to ourselves and our surroundings is deepened.
Much research is being done on the physical, emotional and psychological effects of singing. Scientific evidence shows that singing influences many activities that are vital for our well being, for example brain function, heartbeat and breathing.
