This article is focused on the benefits of Singing and how it really can help you all year around!
So, how exactly can singing help me I hear you ask!
Singing can help you:
Improve your Concentration
Singing, at its roots, is so simple. We can all do it from birth - listen to how loudly babies cry considering their tiny size !
As we learn more about the world this natural reflex can diminish. But all is not lost ! With good teaching and coaching, anyone can learn about their voice and...
I recommend the following books:
The Structure of Singing - Richard Miller
Great Singers on Great Singing - Jerome Hines
Hints on Singing - Manuel Garcia

Here are a few ideas I have with regard to the technical aspect of singing. I don't think anyone can underestimate the physicality of vocal production. Good posture (based on Alexander technique), a real sense of feeling the ground through your feet and a buoyant and flexible breathing mechanism...
All great performers take their work very seriously indeed, but none more so than the musician. Very few art forms combine both the left and right brain in the same way as music. We only have to look at one of Bach's intricately woven chorales to realise that music is where the wayward...
