Tags: Leader, Parkinson's, Singing, Training, Vocal, Wellbeing

Sing to Beat Parkinson’s groups use techniques based on years of research to help those with Parkinson’s to maintain or improve their psychological and physical wellbeing through taking part in regular singing activity.

Each January Snape hosts a two-day residential course for singing leaders and speech therapists, through which participants can gain a greater awareness and understanding of how to set up and run singing groups for people living with Parkinson’s. The course combines theoretical background with practical workshops and demonstrations of exercises and repertoire, as well as practical advice about how to set up and fund a group. Activities are led by leading researchers and pracitioners in the field.

Our next course will take place on 27th and 28th January 2020 – to register interest please email Sing to Beat Parkinson’s Programme Director Matt Shipton:
