VIDEO: #SUHotTopics: The benefits of singing on physical and mental health

In October 2017 we ran a Facebook Live event giving the music teacher community an opportunity to discuss with experts a topic important to teachers, pupils, and pretty much everyone.

Research Fellow Daisy Fancourt and Music Therapist Phoene Cave sat down with Sing Up's CEO Michelle James for an hour to talk about the physical and mental health benefits of singing.

We started with a little science on how singing effects us and why our bodies benefit, and ended with some warm-ups and ideas to help teachers gain those benefits in their practice.
