There is so much scientific evidence out there that music not only uplifts and empowers, but it actually does heal the soul.

Music gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, 
flight to the imagination and life to everything.


Five positive things that happen inside our bodies when we are sing, dance and make music with our family:

  1. Dopamine, a chemical that works to help regulate the brain’s pleasure and reward centre, is released. 
  2. Our brains get an endorphin rush, which is known to relieve pain and create a high.
  3. Prolactin, a hormone which regulates our immune system is also released.
  4. Cortisol levels are reduced which means we are less stressed.
  5. Serotonin, a neurotransmitter mostly found in the digestive tract that helps regulate our moods and social behaviour is also released.

We have been delighted to hear from our families, sharing what our music program is doing for them during lockdown; ‘I can’t tell you how much joy your online program is bringing to our family during this tricky time.’

So if your family is feeling the isolation blues, make sure you keep singing, dancing and making music.

May your home be filled with music and joy! ❤️ 🎶
