Singing has been called “the earliest form of music” and is even considered an integral component of the social evolution of humans!  Singing socially  “is something that can promote human well-being by facilitating human contact, human meaning, and human imagination of possibilities.”  So, it’s no wonder that our brains reward us when we sing together.

Singing

At Ladybug Music we love singing as group and studies show by singing together we:

  • our brains release oxytocin, which is a chemical that manages stress & anxiety
  • oxytocin also enhances feelings of trust & bonding
  • our cortisol levels reduce, which is an indication of lower stress levels
  • dopamine and endorphins are released, which bring feelings of pleasure and alertness

Studies have continuously proven that singing in a group relieves anxiety and contributes to the quality of life. The benefits are the same whether you are a “good” singer or not.

Singing to (and with) your kids has wonderful benefits, from making them feel secure as babies, to helping signal transitions as toddlers, but to go somewhere together where you can sing with others is a wonderful gift to give both them, and yourself.

So sing in the car, sing at home, sing with your kids, sing in a band and come sing with us at Ladybug Music, it will make you feel AAAAH-mazing! 🙂
