Sing to Beat Parkinson’s

Losing the voice can have a major impact on one’s quality of life. 

There is a growing body of evidence that shows that singing can help people living with Parkinson’s retain their voice quality for longer.

Watch members of the Skylarks singing group in Kent in action and find out more about the benefits of singing for people living with Parkinson’s.

You can find out more detailed information from the ‘Singing and people with Parkinson’s’ report (PDF) published by the Sidney de Haan Research Centre for Arts and Health, Canterbury Christchurch University in 2012.
