Singing for wellbeing / being well while singing:

An online panel discussion

 Monday 13th July, 2020

4:30 PM

We know how important singing is to wellbeing, just as it is key to skill development, but as plans are made for the return to full-time school life from September, we are concerned that the government is not setting out a clear route back to musical performance and that as a result schools are unsure how to include and promote singing in the timetable next year.

report by the World Health Organisation (Dr Fancourt, 2019) revealed that engaging in artistic activities reduces social inequality, encourages healthy behaviour and positive mental health.

“We see examples of programmes which have helped vulnerable children manage anxiety and aggression, increase school attendance and self-esteem.”

We are keen to support you as you work to understand the current guidance and the emerging science on safe singing, so that you have the confidence to engage your pupils in singing and the incredible benefits they will gain as a result.

Voices Foundation is pleased to invite you to an online panel discussion on the topic of singing for wellbeing and being well while singing. Our aim is to make the case for singing and music making as a priority and to provide some guidance, ideas and inspiration for how it can be done safely.
