How singing together changes the brain

How singing together changes the brain

Tania de Jong AM makes the case that people singing together can change the brain. Pushing the idea that creativity is the strategic tool of the 21st century, she says how our voices have been silenced and that it's not doing us any good. She explains how singing is a survival mechanism, how it makes our hearts beat together and can help heal strokes and depression.

With singing, and the potential she believes it has, Tania dedicates herself to enhancing and promoting ingenuity and founded Creativity Australia and Creative Universe to do so. As a leading Australian soprano and through 'With One Voice', Tania works with disadvantaged communities. In 2008 she was appointed a Member of the Order of Australia for services to the arts and for the establishment and development of arts enrichment programs for schools and communities.

What Happens to your Brain when you Sing?

What Happens to your Brain when you Sing?

Singing in the shower makes your voice sound great, but is it also good for your mental health? We asked Professor Sarah Wilson from the School of Psychological Sciences at the University of Melbourne. Wilson suggests that yes, singing offers a range of neuro-protective benefits, acting as ďa form of natural therapy.Ē As well as activating a range of networks associated with movement, listening, planning, memory, and language, singing triggers the release of the feel-good neurotransmitter dopamine. According to Wilson, the benefits of singing can be triggered by both singing and thinking about singing. So if you donít feel comfortable breaking into song on the bus, try thinking about it instead.
