Maggie's vocal excercises

The vocal excercises Maggie has provided to keep our voices in shape (especially over the summer break) can be found in the password-protected section.

Voice tips

The folk singer and speech and language therapist Shan Graebe runs courses on use of the voice and on how to look after it. She has included a number of handouts from these workshops on her webpage and these may well be of interest to members.

The Choral Cure

We know that singing makes us feel great but now research being carried out is discovering how singing can actually improve your health. The benefits of singing for health are being rediscovered by health practitioners and patients, such as those attending "Singing for Breathing" sessions at the Royal Brompton Hospital.
