Online session

Singing and Covid-19 Rehabilitation

An online reflective roundtable event for existing singing leaders to reflect and think together on how they might adapt their current practice for people recovering from Covid-19.

Recent publicity has generated a widespread interest in singing as an intervention for the thousands of people recovering from Covid-19. As a result, some UK NHS Trusts are funding singing groups to support rehabilitation for Long Covid sufferers.

We are keen to establish a deeper understanding that singing is an aerobic activity, which may or may not be appropriate rehabilitation for someone recovering from a virus that can impact the whole person.

This is not a training session but a virtual, reflective roundtable event building on the presentation earlier this year hosted by Jenevora Williams. The event will include generous time in break out rooms to explore with peers some fundamental questions about safe, musical, responsive and embodied practice supported by the hosts.
