Online Session via Zoom (map)
Fri 18th Aug 2023, 10:30am to 11:30am (1 hour)
Join our online singing community and get ready to belt out some tunes in the comfort and security of your own home.
Singing is particularly beneficial for people with Parkinson’s, as the condition can affect speech and voice in some people.
Singing can be an excellent form of exercise, providing a work-out for your voice and lungs and releasing endorphins to make you feel energised and uplifted.
And the beauty of online singing is that you can sing to your heart’s content as the only person who will hear you - is you!
Singing can also provide a number of emotional benefits, which a number of last year’s participants reported back to us, including:
- improved confidence
- reduced anxiety
- increased feelings of well-being
- reduced feelings of social isolation.
So why not give it a go? Join our talented Music Therapist, Katani LaRocca, on selected Fridays at 10:30am to 11:30am for a one hour, open singing session on Zoom.
Sessions are free to attend, but please register your attendance below so we can send you the link to join us.
