Hello and welcome to the Singing for Health Network. Our aim is to bridge research and practice and provide a platform for sharing between practitioners and researchers. The Singing for Health Network is a membership network for anyone interested or involved in Singing for Health.
This Network is not seeking to replicate, but to build on existing resources and provide a useful platform for practitioners and researchers and anyone interesting in Singing for Health. The aim is to support those researching Singing for Health with promoting their work and to support new and emerging voices as well as established researchers/practitioners. Membership to the network will open to those working in or interested in Singing for Health (in the UK, mainly).
Partners so far include Dr Stephen Clift (previously of Sidney De Haan and now York St John University), University College London, Sing for Pleasure, Britten Pears Arts and Sing to Beat Parkinson’s and Music for Dementia.
We are delighted to be supported by Dr Daisy Fancourt from University College London, who will be sharing some of her research in Singing for Health on this new resource.
We have consulted with practitioners and researchers in Cornwall and beyond in the aims for the Network and the feedback so far has been very positive. The draft aims have been developed with practitioners and researchers.
