Singing for Breathing
Singing for Breathing aims to enhance existing physiotherapeutic support for respiratory conditions by introducing a new form of enjoyable, informal exercise, teaching a better understanding of breath control through the use of the voice in group settings.
Singing for Breathing is funded entirely through charitable donations. The first tranche of work was funded by a 2008 concert held in memory of the late Ian Adam, organised by Peter French. If you would like to help support this project with a donation please contact the arts team.
This groundbreaking programme has received extensive national media coverage:
