Singing and Wellbeing: Ancient Wisdom, Modern Proof (Book)

Kay Norton

Singing and Wellbeing provides evidence that the benefits of a melodious voice go far beyond pleasure, and confirms the importance of singing in optimum health. A largely untapped resource in the health care professions, the singing voice offers rewards that are closer than ever to being fully quantified by advances in neuroscience and psychology. For music, pre-med, bioethics, and medical humanities students, this book introduces the types of ongoing research that connect behaviour and brain function with the musical voice.  Author Kay Norton is an Associate Professor of Musicology at Arizona State University.
