Singing for Health and Wellbeing: Scotland’s Singing for Health Network
Scotland’s Singing for Health Network is designed to provide a space for singing practitioners, medical practitioners, and researchers working on singing and health, to come together to share knowledge, ideas, and practice and to open avenues for communication between individuals and organisations. The network aims to educate and inform those in the community, particularly teachers and health practitioners, about the current Singing for Health practice and how it can support those in the community who many benefit from regular singing, perhaps in the form of attending a Singing for Health group.
In this brief presentation, we will outline the need for this kind of network and will discuss the project outputs and how these are being used to connect and inform healthcare workers, musicians, and anyone in the community, to learn more about the how singing can be used to support health and well-being.
