” I believe in singing. I believe in singing together.”
“I believe in singing to such an extent that if I were asked to redesign the British educational system, I would start by insisting that group singing become a central part of the daily routine. I believe it builds character and, more than anything else, encourages a taste for co-operation with others. This seems to be about the most important thing a school could do for you.”
Check out this link to Brian Eno (founder member of Roxy Music) talking about the benefits of singing. I couldn’t agree more!!
