Everybody Sing

It seems that people are thinking and talking about communal singing these days more than they have in recent years. Even so notable a musical figure as Brian Eno has said that he believes that group singing can contribute to a longer and better quality life. Shucks, as a music therapist I've known this for years. A lot of what I do is to try to get folks to sing together. Thanks, Brian ,for the reinforcement.

I'd love to hear from people about whether and how much they get a chance to sing with groups of people. We're not talking choral singing in particular just any old singing. Wouldn't it be cool if physicians would encourage their patients to sing?
