It’s now clearer than ever singing is good for you.
So much evidence points to its health benefits – improved breathing, posture and muscle tension. Singing can promote better mental health, and stimulation that can help those suffering from dementia. Research shows many other positives too. Boosted social skills, reduced loneliness, being part of a cohesive group.
We know this to be true at More Music. Participants at our singing sessions constantly tell us how good they are for their wellbeing. We bring our game changing work to young and old, to diverse communities locally and regionally.
But like for so many other organisations right now, we’re under pressure from cuts. To carry on this quality of work needs a supported experienced team.
And singing to feel good and boost health is needed more than ever. Young people who come to our sessions report mental health issues. Communities are suffering from isolation and entrenched poverty.
Despite the pressures, More Music provided more than 4800 opportunities to take part in singing over the last year. From high profile performances to sessions for young people, over 60s and people with special needs we made thousands of chances to feel good through singing.
We’re asking for your help to keep reaching this many people. Just a pound a place can help secure our leading approach to wellbeing and health through singing for another season. Support our summer pound a place appeal to help people raise their voices up. We know this transforms lives for the better. Help the song carry on.
