Research and Resources

On these pages, we’re starting to build a list of links to published research, or evidence from people’s own experiences, of the benefits of singing for particular physical and mental health conditions.  There’s so much out there so this is just the tip of the iceberg!  But we do hope you find this helpful.

Use the menu on the left to find out more about the benefits of singing for particular health conditions or read on for some general information.
