Further information:

SING TO BEAT PARKINSON’S are delighted to announce a Derby training date on Saturday 3rd November 2018 at the University of Derby. Now in our third year of training, many new groups have been established across the country and a national network of Singing for Health practitioners is in the process of being fully established.

This course offers a unique and specialist opportunity for musicians and emerging artists to gain invaluable experience and develop a toolkit to run a singing group for people with Parkinson’s and associated conditions, and their carers and family members.

The course will be led by:

  • Grenville Hancox  – Honorary Professor in Music, Health and Well Being, University of Kent; Artistic Director, Canterbury Cantata Trust Founder and expert in singing and wellbeing
  • Nicola Wydenbach – an experienced Parkinson’s and Singing practitioner and Founder of the Contented Music Club
  • Trish Vella-Burrows – Director of Research at STBP, Assistant Director of the Sidney De Haan Research Centre for Arts and Health and an experienced Singing for Health practitioner
  • Yoon Irons – Senior Research Fellow, Arts and Health Centre of Excellence, College of Health and Social Care, University of Derby.

Participants will gain a greater awareness and understanding of singing and Parkinson’s. There will be practical workshops and demonstrations on how to lead warm-ups and songs and other activities that are tailor-made for this client group, as well as practical advice about how to set up and run a group once the course is finished.
