Sing to Beat Parkinson's Fundraising Workshop

Thursday 20th May 2021, 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM (London Time)

On Thursday 20th May, 5pm-7pm (UK Time), Voice Study Centre are holding a Fundraising Workshop for Sing to Beat Parkinson’s. All proceeds raised from this workshop will go towards founding a new Sing to Beat group in Northern Ireland led by Elizabeth Drwal, a researcher and practitioner in this area. The funds will establish a group for Parkinson’s sufferers, and it will pay for set up costs, practitioner delivery costs and premises/online work.

This workshop will be led by Nicola Wydenbach, the Director of Training at Sing to Beat Parkinson’s. It will give you an overview of Singing to Beat Parkinson’s and will introduce you to practical exercises used by practitioners. If you are interested in learning more about this important area within Singing for Health, or in developing your knowledge base around singing for Parkinson’s then this workshop is designed for you. This workshop links directly to training on the Sing to Beat programme, so this would provide a solid foundation for further study with the Sing to Beat group.

The donation fee to attend this workshop will be £20, and you will be able to donate using the link below. 

As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility programme, Voice Study Centre commits to the following pledges:

  • Voice Study Centre will pay Nicola Wydenbach’s presenter fee.
  • All proceeds will be donated to the Sing to Beat support charity.
  • All proceeds will be used to establish a Sing to Beat group.
  • Where there is a shortfall for establishing the group, Voice Study Centre will pay the shortfall.
