Singing equals Happy Times:
- From scientific evidence and my own personal experience as a chorister in many amateur musicals and with The Daydream Believers Inclusive choir, I believe singing to be a magical powerful means of self-expression. Singing together in a group enhances communication with others, changes your energy and lifts your spirit .
- Singing can help us to tap into our own inner feelings and give vent to pent-up emotions that without expression may result in negative emotional, psychological, and/or physical symptoms.
- There is much evidence to support the great healing potential of vocalising, whether it is through singing solo or in a choir or through meditative toning and chanting.
- Giving vocal expression to the many parts of our personalities, or through the therapeutic effects of a soothing or inspiring voice on the listener, singing is utilised to help release inhibition, increase assertiveness, unleash the emotions, and increase self-esteem.
- Evidence shows that music and singing is also used as a therapeutic tool to connect with, free up and integrate into consciousness, the unconscious parts of the personality that continue to undermine the individual's ability to change dysfunctional patterns of behaviour.
- With greater awareness and insight comes the capacity for increased self-empowerment, improved relationships and, ultimately, greater happiness
- Finally, good singing and good health both require good nutrition, adequate sleep, exercise, relaxation, and correct breathing technique, and is the result of a commitment to healthy vocal practice and healthy living.

Singing unites souls
Singing SOULves so much
I find solace in singing
Singing in the car
singing at the bar
singing in the shower
singing on the hour
when you sing
You become a star
singing and dancing keeps me sane
singing saves and changes my brain
singing and dancing is certain
to draw away the dark curtain
Singing soothes you
Singing moves you
Singing Oozes joy
Keeps you on the go
Gives back more
Singing is such fun
Singing brings in sun
Singing brings you in the now
Join us -sing ...... no anger or rows
Singing is forever
Singing SOULves so so much
I find solace in singing
