I sing, and I must say it does help. :) Also, through my work we grant fund singing for mental health and Alzheimer's, because there is good evidence of benefits. I don't know what it is about singing and the brain, but it does indeed seen to have positive effects. :)


Hi Clare I've just come across your post a few years to late I'm sure :( but do you still have the adult star singers group going ? I love singing & it's the only thing keeping going through my ordeal. I live in Cheltenham & struggling to find fellows close to me struggling all the same. I'm based on the village road, near The cross hands pub. X
