Making music is proven to be one of the most active and stimulating things that a person can do for their brain. Music is inside all of us, from before we are born. Our heart beat and breathing are examples of how the body has innate rhythm. When we sing or play music in a group, feelings of wellbeing are multiplied as we connect and share the experience with others. The relationship between the breath, body and voice is a powerful tool for physical and mental wellbeing. For example, it has been proven that people with lung conditions can successfully manage their symptoms through singing.
