MA Voice Pedagogy student Sarah Summers to share her work with the Singing for Health Network!

Thursday 23rd May 2024

We are proud to hear that MA Voice Pedagogy student Sarah Summers has been invited to Chair and contribute to a webinar with the Singing for Health Network.

The topic of the webinar is ‘Singing for carers of those with health conditions’, and will cover areas including insights into practice, funding/partnerships, and research/evaluation.

As a leader of community choirs, Sarah’s work is largely informed by her training in Vocal Health.

Sarah leads a choir of unpaid carers called ‘Carers Voices’. She has recently researched this specific community to explore how she can best cater for their needs as singers.

Sarah will be discussing her experience working with the choir during the webinar, accompanied with other practitioners of carers choirs.

Congratulations, Sarah!
