The first seminar will be a more in-depth look at the benefits of singing, including seeing the effects of singing on the brain. Research will be brought in from other institutions looking at singing and health, and there will be space for questions, comments and some discussion.
The seminars are designed to inform rather than up-skill. That will happen in the Monthly Monday sessions.
Future topics will include:
1. The ageing voice, what it looks like and how it functions.
2. What programmes are running elsewhere for seniors and singing. We know about young@heart, and a Song for Marion, but what is happening under the radar? More than you think :-)
3. A view of the aged care in New Zealand and how Harmonic Health is helping keep people healthy through singing.
In this first seminar series you will discover what other villages are doing with singing programmes.
