Singing Together

 

A little over four years ago, I read an article by Stacy Horn in Time magazine in which she reported on the research being done on the mental health benefits of singing—singing in groups in particular. According to Horn, "What researchers are beginning to discover is that singing is like an infusion of the perfect tranquilizer, the kind that both soothes your nerves and elevates your spirits." Some studies suggest that singing releases hormones that bring us pleasure or relieve stress. Others suggest that, as Horn puts it, "The pleasure that comes from singing together is our evolutionary reward for coming together cooperatively, instead of hiding alone, every cave-dweller for him or herself." The studies show that the benefits of singing don't depend on how well you sing, and the more regularly you sing, the more benefits you reap.
