Singing is one of those miracles of life that brings joy to many people, but it can also bring many other wonderful benefits.
Singing on its own helps you experience happiness in a whole new way by altering your physical and emotional well-being. When one sings in a group, an incredible transformation occurs. This occurs through the release of endorphins, which ultimately brings on feelings of pleasure and euphoria. Oxytocin is also released and enhances sensation of trust and bonding. For those of us who suffer from the winter-time blues (especially in the Pacific Northwest), this can be an excellent opportunity to kill the depression and loneliness. Usually when you sing, there is a lower level of cortisol, signaling a lower level of stress, which ultimately helps you achieve a true level of contentment.
So... what can singing do for you?
So, have you learned anything? We have! Here in our barbershop chorus, we realize that no singing, is like having no life at all. Thus, singing = LIFE
