Singing is one of the simplest and yet most powerful forms of music-making. Anyone can learn, and everyone possesses this instrument. All the basic elements of music – pitch, melody, harmony, timbre, rhythm, dynamics, expression and so on – are learned through singing. In fact, because our instrument is built within us, singing is the quickest and most direct way to learn and internalise music.
Understanding the complexity of the anatomy and learning how to control all the muscles and tap into the energy and thoughts that allow you to sing to your full potential, is one of the most freeing gifts you can ever receive. These skills can be used for everyday health and communication too.
Social and joyous, singing frees the soul and relieves the stresses of everyday life. Because the essence of singing is internal, it is felt more deeply than playing an instrument and therefore has a more profound and personal effect. It gives you a positive and acceptable outlet for all emotions and confidence to express yourself and your voice. If that wasn’t enough, singing has been shown to increase social harmony, boost the immune system, improve powers of concentration, and enhance classroom performance.
And a love of singing lasts a lifetime.
Happy Singing! 🗣️
