The Benefits and Joy of Group Singing
Singing in a group is exhilarating and transformative. One small sound that begins inside you, mixes with a room full of others and comes back as something even more breathtaking, harmony. In a choral group setting a child begins to learn about music rhythmically and melodically, in real time, perfectly synchronized with the conductor and other musicians.
Voices will be trained technically. They will be introduced to a variety of music styles, composers, languages and historical information.
Researchers are beginning to discover that singing is like an infusion of the perfect tranquilizer, the kind that both soothes your nerves and elevates your spirits. Still more studies have found that singing lessens the feelings of depression and loneliness. A very preliminary investigation suggesting that our heart rates may sync up during group singing could also explain why singing together sometimes feels like a guided group meditation. Study after study has found that singing relieves anxiety and contributes to quality of life.
Your child can benefit from joining a choir even if they don’t seem to have any outstanding musical ability. Participating in a choir helps young musicians develop a set of skills that only comes from ensemble performance. Singing equips the participants with a healthy vocal technique, developing a strong, commanding, and resonant voice as well as vocal health that will last a lifetime. Not only is this useful in a choir, but whatever activity or vocation they choose to pursue. Proper use of the voice is an asset in speech and debate, drama or as a lawyer presenting a case before a courtroom.
Introduce a young child to as many different opportunities as possible to discover their talents and strengths, guide them as they develop and explore those skills. The exposure builds confidence. The earlier they start, the earlier they begin to develop a sense of poise which, will naturally displace the common fear of speaking or performing in public.
At Studio Sharise, our music teachers will work together to build the inherent potential your child has and believe that much improvement will come with focus and diligence as we explore a joy of singing that will continue into adulthood.
