Singing for the Brain is a HSE Cork-Kerry Community healthcare supported initiative. It is an arts and health project that was conceived by musical director Fiona Flavin and first piloted by the Crystal Project Mallow in 2015 and now runs in Cork city and County and online.
Singing for the Brain brings people together, from all walks of life, in a friendly and stimulating social environment. The sessions are relaxed and enjoyable and can provide a way for people, in particular those with Dementia and Alzheimer’s, along with their carers, friends, and family, to socialise with others in a fun and supportive musical setting.
There is plenty of evidence to show how singing is not only good for our brain but for our general wellbeing too. Even when many memories are hard to retrieve, music is especially easy to recall. Everyone is welcome, whether you already sing or not, no singing experience is necessary.
