Our singing workshops for schools offer many benefits emotionally, physically and cognitively. By incorporating singing into your student’s lives, they can reap huge rewards which will benefit them throughout their school lives and beyond. Below are several amazing benefits that singing can offer.
Five Benefits of Singing Workshops for Schools
Singing Improves Mood
Increasing scientific evidence shows that singing releases serotonin, dopamine and endorphins, all ‘happy’ chemicals. These chemicals can boost our mood and happiness levels, making us feel good about ourselves. Who doesn’t need more happy chemicals during the school day!
Singing Improves Memory
Singing requires us to focus on several tasks at once (posture, breathing, pitch, lyrics etc.), engaging multiple areas of the brain. It can therefore help to improve concentration and memory. This also translates to improved memory function across the board, meaning concentration and memory will improve in other subjects.
Singing Improves Lung Function
Singing involves deep breathing and breath control, making it beneficial to lung health. It increases the strength of our respiratory muscles and increases oxygen levels in the blood.
Singing Lowers Stress Levels
Singing can reduce levels of the stress hormone cortisol in the blood, along with releasing muscle tension. It can therefore lower stress levels and lead to feelings of relaxation. This will have a knock on effect in the classroom, lowering stress levels throughout the day.
Singing Enhances Communication Skills
Singing exposes students to a wide range of texts and lyrics which can improve and broaden their literacy skills. Writing their own songs and lyrics is also a great way to enhance literacy and writing skills. Not to mention, writing lyrics and melodies fosters creativity in students, and allows them space to express themselves.
