Choral Singing Therapy Group

The Neurological Choral Singing Group meets weekly on a Tuesday, during school terms at the Dementia Waikato Rooms at 25 Rifle
Range Road in Dinsdale, free parking at the back easy access. Phone (07) 929 4042

Sessions are for people with Parkinson’s, Stroke or other Neurological conditions affecting communication & speech. A fun and exciting therapy group: Research shows compelling evidence that singing helps voice and breathing in people with Parkinson’s & may help to re-wire the brain after injury, assisting with aphasia. The sessions include a series of voice/facial/breathing exercises
followed by a repertoire of familiar songs. Singing is a culturally universal pastime that unites people and produces a sense of belonging. No experience or skills required. It’s not how we sound – it’s about making a sound.

Sessions are directed by Musical Therapist Shona How, assisted by Pianist Anne Stonnell.

Coffee & Tea will be provided & the cost per session is $3 per person or $5 per couple to assist with costs.
